Rocky Mountain Gardening Required Course Group II
Trees are a fundamental part of any landscape design, but tough climate and soils in our state make tree selection and growth challenging. This seminar provides an overview of shade, ornamental and conifer trees, both common and unusual, that can be grown in Colorado.
Individual trees will be discussed in the classroom using slides and samples, followed by a field trip to Regis University to see trees in a park-like setting where they have been able to attain mature size. Cultural and maintenance requirements will be covered.
$135 member, $161 non-member.
