MCD Forester and Wildlife Biologist, Josh Shields, will be hosting two presentations on planting native trees and shrubs!

The presentation on February 6th is in Manistee County and in partnership with PIW - Plant It Wild. The presentation on February 7th is in Lake County and in partnership with Mason-Lake Conservation District and MSU Extension.

These are great presentations to attend if you plan to purchase seedlings from our upcoming spring seedling sales. Topics of discussion will include site preparation and planting techniques, containerized versus bareroot stock, spring versus autumn planting, protecting seedlings from animal browsing, and more! The Lake County presentation will have a special focus on selecting fruit tree cultivars, pruning methods for fruit trees, and the proper handling and care of fruit trees.

Registration is required for either location/date. See below to register online, or call us at 231-889-9666.
