Join us for a webinar with guest speaker James Urban, FASLA, on “Specifying and Selecting Quality Nursery Stock” on Wednesday, May 8th at 11am Pacific.

One of the most important points in the process of designing and planting a tree is that moment when the specific tree is approved in the nursery for purchase – a decision that can have a far-reaching on the long-term success of a project. Yet the specification and selection process is fraught with miscommunication, inaccuracies, and often poor-quality trees.

Title: Specifying and Selecting Quality Nursery Stock
Date: Wednesday, May 8, 2013
Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Pacific (please note the start time in your timezone)

Based on his article in the April 2013 issue of Landscape Architecture Magazine, “The Root of the Problem,” James Urban will take participants through the process and challenges of specifying and selecting quality trees. He will animate the problem with many images not published in the article, and participants will learn how they can assure better quality trees and other plants for their clients, creating truly sustainable, long-lived trees. Webinar participants will also get access to a newly developed planting specification that addresses these issues. We ask that you download and read Jim’s article prior to the webinar.

There will be plenty of time for questions and answers at the end of the presentation.
