The recently released Ontario Landscape Tree Planting Guide is one of the most comprehensive tree planting guides ever developed for use by the landscape industry across Canada — and likely North America. The Guide is available to all user groups, including installers, designers, and specifiers.
Join author Dr. Darby McGrath, and steering committee members and industry experts Ian Bruce and Dr. Glen Lumis, to learn more about how this document was developed as well as the rationale for its new, unique format. This talk will explore the Guide which is comprised of summaries of up-to-date research and a series of corresponding field sheets that refines the information into actionable items.
