GRCA offers tree-care seminar

The Grand River Conservation Authority has opened registration for a free tree-care seminar at its head office in Cambridge.

The day-long event on March 3 will deal with all aspects of tree management.

GRCA forestry staff, along with experts from Pollination Guelph and other agencies will speak about topics ranging from broad forest health issues to impacts on individual trees.

Local tree and restoration companies will also exhibit products and services. 

Topics include planting, pruning, common tree diseases, invasive species, hazard trees, forest health, pollinators, management plans and grant opportunities for rural landowners.

Landowners with properties greater than five acres may be eligible for funding for tree planting or wetland creation projects. Priority is given to areas directly adjacent to watercourses.

Participation is free and lunch is included.
