February 2014 Monthly Meeting

We had to cancel the meeting for Monday, February 16th at Bethesda Senior Center  due to inclement weather.  We hope to be able to schedule Gary Peiffer at a future date.  We will learn there is a native tree that will perform excellently in every corner of your property.  When you plant a tree you are making a huge property investment.  The right tree (or shrub), in the right place will anchor your home for 20 and perhaps 100 years.  Gary Peiffer, the current DeKalb County Extension Agent with an extensive background in forestry practices and a certified arborist, will identify the good and the poor characteristics of some trees native to Georgia.  He will make some recommendations and provide us with quite a few pointers on proper tree care.
