Species Selection Tree Walk

Online Via Zoom

Saturday, September 5 2020, 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM


What will your newly planted tree look like as it matures?


Event Types > Community Events


Planting a new tree is exciting, you choose your tree for who they will be in 10-20 years - so what will they look like? A mature Oregon White Oak can be upwards of 50 feet tall, but getting there will take a while - especially at an average of less than one foot each year. Join UF arborists to see what your tree will look like in your yard, and then visit some of our shared locations to check out these trees on your own. This will be a virtual tree walk via Zoom.


Please pre-register, an invitation to join the webinar will be sent to registered attendees beforehand with the link to join the webinar.
The workshop will begin promptly at 9:00 am, please note that email will not be checked during the scheduled program time.
