Description of the Event: Trees are the backbone of our landscapes. Properly planted and cared for, they can cool our home in the summer and help block winter winds. Because of this energy-saving service, and their inherent beauty, trees add value to our home. Identifying trees and knowing their individual characteristics allows us to better care for them, and helps us to choose more wisely when it is time to plant. Tollgate is a wonderful classroom for learning more about the trees in our yard, our neighborhood, and our favorite wild area. Bob will share his extensive tree identification skills, and we will walk away with an even greater appreciation for these woody giants. Robert (Bob) Bricault is the Washtenaw County Extension Educator of Horticulture and Natural Resources. He is a graduate of Urban Forestry, with 25 years' experience as a horticulture educator for MSU Extension, Washtenaw and Jackson counties. He also oversees the state-wide MSU Extension State Garden Hotline.
