Urban Tree Conference: Shrub Planting and Care

Trees are a valuable asset to nature, but their value is often overlooked in urban settings. The six-day, 18 session virtual Urban Tree Conference for industry professionals and avid gardeners will cover all aspects of urban tree planning, implementation and management. 

For most landscapes, shrubs are the backbone of the design. Ever-present and at eye-level, this plant material has to perform well no matter the time of year. So often shrubs are planted with poor spacing and pruned into unsightly forms. Join Illinois Extension horticulture educator Chris Enroth as he talks about proper placement and care for Midwestern shrubs as well as his favorite shrubs.

Registration opens November 13, 2020.
