Urban Forestry Outreach, Research and Extension Field Day
All tree lovers are invited to an open house and field day at the Urban Forestry Outreach, Research and Extension nursery on the St. Paul campus from 10:00 am to noon on Thursday, August 16. Learn about the latest research on diseases of elms and oaks and get updates on tree health from the Plant Disease Clinic. Among many practical informational sessions, you'll get tips on pruning, bracing, cabling and injecting trees. There will be both workshops and informational tables throughout the open house, many showcasing the research of CFANS students, staff and faculty. Lunch will be served at noon, courtesy of the Minnesota Society of Arboriculture.
Parking is available along Gortner Avenue with tractor and wagon shuttles to the nursery (just north of the UMN Equine Center).
