March 15, 2018 NOVa Roundtable

Held at Wetlands Studies and Solutions LLC in Gainesville VA

AGENDA:  How Do We Know Trees We've Planted Are Surviving and Thriving?

In addition to local knowledge, experience and connections (i.e., the heart of the Roundtable), this event will also feature a guest who has studied this issue extensively. 

Lara Roman, PhD, US Forest Service Research Ecologist will present studies of how other jurisdictions throughout the nation deal with limited staffing and budgets to monitor their trees survival and growth.

Registration fee for everyone attending is $10.00. This fee helps cover cost of continental breakfast.  

You may bring your own lunch or we can purchase a lunch for you for $10.00, making the total $20.00.
