“Trees For The Future: Plan(t)ing For A Changing Climate”

February 18 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

free

How can we plant trees that will thrive in an unknown future? What factors should we consider when choosing and planting saplings that might live a century or more? We will be exploring and discussing many factors such as a changing climate, carbon sequestration, pests and disease, wildlife, aesthetics, genetics, human uses and budget. We will focus on species selection for diversity and resilience

Jacob Holzberg-Pill’s work as an educator has centered on agroecology, nature connection and holistic land stewardship. He holds graduate degrees in Education and Forest Ecology. Jacob co-founded Dig In Farm, facilitating regenerative agriculture programs for young people. He loves growing harvesting and eating fruits, nuts and berries.
