Winter Tree Care – Come Ready to Learn!

PEEC News:

Laural Hardin is back at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) to talk about all the things you can do to help trees survive the winter and come out strong in the spring.

She will cover topics such as water, tree wrap, and basic pruning. The presentation will also consider how changing climate effects tree dormancy, and what can be done to boost tree vigor and growth. This talk focuses mostly on non-native urban trees, but will include ponderosa, pinon and juniper.  

Hardin is a certified arborist and integrated pest management specialist. She specializes in diagnosing and solving tree and garden problems. With an interest in helping people understand the natural balance in the landscape, Hardin teaches us how to avoid most issues by learning to see the root cause. She loves to share her knowledge with hands on workshops and fact-filled talks, so come prepared to learn!

The cost is $6 for PEEC members and $8 for nonmembers. No advance registration is required.

PEEC is at 3540 Orange St. in Los Alamos. For more information, call 505.662.0460 or visit
