Description:

Idea Exchange is pleased to partner with REEP Green Solutions to bring you this virtual event where you will be guided through the process of selecting a tree that will thrive on your property.

A tree is an investment that provides benefits for a lifetime. But with hundreds of trees to choose from, how do you know which is best for you? At this FREE virtual workshop you will be guided through the process of selecting a tree that will thrive on your property. We’ll go through the decision making process looking at some of these questions:

  • Do I want shade, privacy, spring flowers, fall colours or winter interest?
  • Do I want to attract songbirds?
  • Is the soil dry or is it damp?
  • How close can my tree be to the house or power lines?
  • What’s the best time to plant and prune?
  • How do I take care of it once it’s been planted?

Our facilitator Adele Pierre will lead a discussion on how to make an informed plan and find the right fit to ensure a healthy and thriving tree for years to come. * Please note this event will be delivered by REEP Green Solutions on Zoom.
