The Williamson County Master Gardeners Association will be teaching tree selecting and hosting a planting demonstration at their upcoming meeting on Friday, November 13.
“Did you know that fall is a great time to plant trees,” according to the association. “Planting in the fall allows the tree to develop a healthy root system that will support the bright new growth in the spring. We can grow a wide variety of trees in this area, everything from the majestic Live Oak to Cedar Elms with their bright yellow fall foliage to Pecan Trees with their tasty nuts.”
If you are interested in planting some trees in your landscape this fall but aren’t sure what kind or how to plant them, join the Williamson County Master Gardeners Association for a Tree Selection and Planting Workshop.
Rob Grotty, Parks Maintenance Supervisory from the City of Leander will be speaking about recommended tree varieties for our area, and Warren Sefcik from Native Tree Farm demonstrate how to plant trees to give them a good start.
The program will be from 11 am–1 pm, with lunch included. The charge is $20 per person, and you can register on our website, williamson.agrilife.org.
Masks are required and social distancing rules apply. The location is Berry Springs Park Pavilion, 1801 Co Rd 152, Georgetown, Tx 78626 (see map below).
