    On June 24, 2014 at 12:00 p.m. MDT, USU Forestry Extension hosted the 18th "Learn at Lunch" webinar featuring Roger Kjelgren and Larry Rupp.

    We all know that trees need water to grow.  But, now that summer is here and waterwise landscaping is all the rage, how can we make sure our urban trees are getting the water they need?  Join this Trees and Water seminar to learn the science and techniques to ensure tree success and responsible watering.
