Benefits and Risks of Trees in your Backyard | In-Person class

July 25 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM CDT

Trees JPMOYc.tmp



Trees growing in our backyard provide
several important benefits e.g., shading, energy benefits for buildings,
aesthetics, rainfall uptake. However, risks may also be associated with
backyard trees posing threats to human safety and property. Therefore, it’s
important to know how to assess the form and health status of trees. This
educational program will provide homeowners with a good understanding of the
benefits and risks associated with backyard trees, while participants will
learn how to visually assess the health status of their backyard trees.
