Urban Tree Conference: Identifying Oaks in Urban Forests and Landscapes

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. 

Did you know there are 21 oak species native to Illinois? Would you be able to correctly identify them as well as the numerous hybrids and introduced oak species? In this session, Extension Plant Pathology Specialist Travis Cleveland will cover some tips and strategies to help you accurately identify some of the most beautiful and valuable specimens of our urban forests and landscapes.
