Our rescheduled February Meeting with a lunchtime twist was held on Monday, March 9th 12:15 pm. “There is a Native Tree…“, a presentation by Gary Peiffer, a long time DeKalb County Extension Agent, a certified arborist and graduate of Duke University School of Forestry and Master Gardener (class of ’79). Gary is an expert who understands his trees who stated, “When you landscape your home, the appropriate tree will establish itself probably for more than 100 years and be a significant long term property investment. What characteristics should you look for in your landscape trees or shrubs? ”
Quite a few members and visitors joined in. Gary shared that there are 215 native trees in Georgia and gave great tips on planting the right tree in the right place.
