Garden Class: Tree & Landscape Restoration
with Rico Montenegro

At Saturday, May 18, 10am-12pm, learn all about tree and landscape restoration after the Carr Fire and last winter’s snow storm for Redding homes and urban forest in this in-depth class taught by Rico Montenegro.

Trees around us in our landscapes, our natural areas and our urban forest, are critical assets, providing clean air, habitat for our furry and winged friends, they create beauty and increase property values and they are a source of food as well as creating shade and reducing heat under their canopy. They are also important investments for homeowners and our communities in many different ways, including increasing our homes values, creating a sense of peace and pride for our communities. Last year and this, the Redding area suffered considerable damage from both the CARR Fire and the recent snow storm to our landscapes and ecology. 

Come with your questions and join Consulting Certified Arborist, Horticulturist and Licensed Pest Control Advisor Rico Montenegro, and formally Chief Arborist for the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation as he shares his expertise about recovery techniques that includes pruning, restoration methods and cultural practices for the care of older and younger trees. This is an empowerment program to help you make the best decision for restoring your trees and surroundings and planning to help minimize future problems.
