VIRTUAL - What Every Homeowner Should Know About Their Trees

Monday, November 147:00—8:30 PMVirtual

Presented in partnership with Lexington Living Landscapes.

Wondering what you could be doing to keep your trees healthy? When to call an arborist, and how they can help? What to do if you’re concerned that a tree is threatening your house? How trees contribute to your family’s comfort and well-being and your home’s value? Join us for a wide-ranging conversation with two experienced arborists to discuss what every homeowner should know about their trees. We’ll save some time at the end for a period of audience Q-and-A. If you have trees on your property, or are thinking of planting one, this program is for you.
