ADDING VALUE TO URBAN TREES: TWO UPCOMING WORKSHOPS AT MSU

What can we do with urban trees after they need to be removed?  Two upcoming workshops help answer that question. The workshops are being held to promote the launch of the Michigan Urban Wood Network, a new group focused on finding the highest and best use for trees removed from Michigan’s community landscapes.

Each event will begin with overview presentations by area experts and will follow with hands-on field demonstrations. Pre-registration is required. Cost is $35 for each workshop and includes full lunch. Please notify the planning team of any special dietary needs after registration.
