Oak trees are important as host plants, for wildlife, and add value to our properties. But which oak should you choose? And how should you care for them? In this expert panel, Mike Leahy, Natural Community Ecologist with the Missouri Department of Conservation will speak on several oak species native to the lower Midwest and their growing conditions in the wild, along with their wildlife benefits. Kim Lovelace-Hainsfurthur, President of Forrest Keeling Nursery, will present on selecting the right oak for specific landscaping needs. Bill Spradley, with Trees, Forests and Landscapes, Inc. will discuss long-term maintenance and care of the oaks you plant.
The master class, to be held via Zoom, will include 50 minutes of instruction with at least 10 minutes for a question and answer period via chat. A recording of the webinar will be available only to those that registered. One CEU for landscape architects will be available.
