Happy Thanksgiving! This week on In the Garden with UC Master Gardeners, the subject is “Urban Forest”. UC Master Gardener Ann Liu is back with a reprise of a powerful, practical, and fact-filled interview with an expert in the field of growing trees in a city setting.
Ann speaks with Michael Palat, a professional with West Coast Arborists overseeing municipal contracts in So. Orange and San Diego Counties. You will learn about the right trees for the right places. This may be the cornerstone consideration when planning a landscape.
What you are planning is a long-term commitment that can add either great value and beauty to your property or greatly burden you with maintenance trimming costs and maybe even damage to utilities both above and below ground! Mr. Palat will guide you through the checklist of tree choices, tree installation, proper pruning techniques, and the subject of Tree Ordinances – one of the tools to attain a successful Urban Forest in your city.
