Spring is here! It is the time of year for some of us to be planting new trees. In this Ask the Expert video, we welcome Lindsey Purcell, urban forestry specialist, as he teaches us how to plant and properly care for our trees. We will go over the tree selection process including which invasive species trees we should avoid and how do we continue to take care of our trees once planted.

If you have any questions regarding wildlife, trees, forest management, wood products, natural resource planning, or other natural resource topics, feel free to contact us by using our Ask an Expert web page.
