December 6, 2023: Bare Root Tree Planting —
12:00 – 1:00 pm (ET)

As urbanization and a rapidly changing climate continue to exert stressors on cities and gardens, the task of reforesting at a rate that matches the loss of tree canopy becomes ever more daunting. Join Sara Evans, Senior Manager and Curator of the Living Collections at Green-Wood where she will shed light on a tree planting project at Green-Wood that ditched the burlap and planted 250 bare root trees. Learn insights of the successes, challenges, and progress of the tree establishment one year after planting.
