Learn how to plant trees that survive and thrive




The first of two Keep Evansville Beautiful Tree Planting and Care Workshops at the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library is scheduled for this Saturday.  Learn how to select the right tree to plant in the right place on your property and how to care for it properly so that it not only survives but thrives.


Saturday’s workshop will take place at Central Library at 9:00 am.  The same workshop will be presented at Oaklyn Branch Library on March 22 at 9:00 am.  Door prizes and one certificate for a free tree will be given away at each program.


The workshop is presented by Mike McGarrah of Keep Evansville Beautiful, Larry Caplan of Purdue University Extension Service, Shawn Dickerson with the Department of Urban Forestry, and Paul Bouseman of Mesker Park Zoo and Botanic Garden.
