How to Sustain and Maintain Our Tree Canopy
Majestic trees provide shade and beauty to Prairie Village and other parts of the metro area, but will they always? Are there things that can be done to prolong the lives of these older trees? How long can we expect these trees to live?
The Prairie Village Tree Board has lined up a panel of four speakers who will address what we can do to save our trees during the fall seminar scheduled for 7 p.m. October 5 in the Birch Room at the Meadowbrook Clubhouse, 9101 Nall Avenue, Prairie Village. Writer and Horticulture agent for Johnson K-State Research and Extension Dennis Patton, Board Certified Master Arborist Ivan Katzer, Suburban Lawn & Garden Vice President Matt Stueck, and Program Manager of the Heartland Tree Alliance Sarah Crowder will all bring their expertise to this important topic.
Past generations made the mistake of using a single variety of tree such as the American elm and green ash to line our streets only to see the tree canopy decimated by disease. The panel of speakers will discuss what kinds of trees we should be planting to replace them. The public is invited to attend free of charge.
