A Four Seasons Gardening program from University of Illinois Extension is scheduled to continue with a session titled "Tree Care in Urban Soils."
Two sessions of the free program are planned in the area.
A presentation is set for 1:30 p.m. March 13 at the Extension office in Metropolis, which is located at 1438 W. 10th St.
On March 15, a presentation is planned at 6:30 p.m. at the Extension office in Anna. The office is in Suite G at 515 E. Vienna St.
Extension horticulture educator Ryan Pankau plans to discuss tree care and urban soils by exploring the attributes of urban soils in contrast to undisturbed forest soils.
Many common impacts to tree health can be related back to the level of disturbance in urban soils.
Ryan will discuss practical ways to diagnose tree symptoms related to soil issues and current tree care techniques that address soils.
The webinar also can be viewed from home by pre-registering at go.illinois.edu/4seasons_webinars.
