Join John Berryhill, Landscape Curator and a Certified Arborist, for a tree planting demonstration. We will be planting new trees in the Smith College Campus Arboretum, which is recognized as an accredited arboretum and as a Tree Campus USA. Learn about the stresses and challenges facing transplanted trees. John will discuss selection of a good nursery specimen, proper timing and techniques, aftercare, pruning, and offer tips from his years of experience. Bring your questions and join the conversation.
