Tree Talk Thursday will be a moderated discussion where we take selected questions from the public and answer them in real time. We will feature the expertise of Casey Trees staff and we will bring in outside contributors to help answer questions and shape the discussion. This is our way of hearing your concerns about trees in your neighborhood and helping to answer your questions. Tree Talk Thursday will also be the best place for you to learn what's new with our organization and how you can help us restore, enhance and protect our city's tree canopy.
All Tree Talk Thursday chats will take place live from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. on select Thursdays. Our first session will kick off with a discussion on how to properly select and plant trees on April 14. Elizabeth Philbrick, Manager of Frager’s Hardware Store’s Garden Center, will join Mike Galvin and Sara Turner, Casey Trees’ deputy director and urban forestry manager respectively, on the chat.
To submit a question in advance or to suggest a topic, email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also tweet a question or idea @CaseyTrees and we'll take note of your question for the next session. Go to caseytrees.org/treetalkthursdays to tune in to a chat live, or check back afterward for a replay of the chat. Sign up now to get an email reminder for the upcoming session. These talks are open to the public, whether you want to participate or just tune in and learn.
