We allocated 22 bare-root trees to Wisconsin residents to be planted as part of our Leafing Out webinar series. In the spirit of species diversity, we offered five different species to the tree giveaway participants: Shadblow Serviceberry, Accolade Elm, Hackberry, Swamp White Oak, and Kentucky Coffeetree. Keep an eye out for pictures and updates of the the trees as they get planted!
The Leafing Out webinar series is funded in part by an urban forestry grant from the State of Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Forestry Program as authorized under s. 23.097, Wis. Stat.
