Leafing Out, Episode 3: Selecting Your Tree, Unique Trees for Your Yard with Jay Weiss

Thursday, March 11, 2021, 12:00-1:00 PM

This webinar has been produced in collaboration with the Dane County Tree Board

Join 1000 Friends and Jay Weiss, Director of the Cambridge Tree Project and Cambridge Tree Trials, to discover new and exciting tree species for your yard. Through the Cambridge Tree Project, Weiss helped the Village of Cambridge increase its tree species diversity from 35 species in 2004 to 164 different species by 2020.

During the same time, the Cambridge Tree Trials monitored the growth and health of the trees. Weiss will share what he thinks people should consider when planting a new tree, and he will use his data to show just how fast trees can grow (some species grow up to 3 feet taller a year). Tune in to hear Weiss’ tree suggestions to plant in your yard – you won’t want to miss it.

The Leafing Out webinar series was funded in part by an urban forestry grant from the State of Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Forestry Program as authorized under s. 23.097, Wis. Stat.
