Talking trees on their turf is the best way to reach specifiers and others who influence the purchase of trees. That’s why we’re attending five upcoming conferences where landscape architects and designers, municipal foresters and arborists, non-profit tree planting organizations, garden writers and therapeutic garden designers will gather. Our purpose for attending these national and regional events is to connect our customers with tree specifiers and buyers, and to share information about our trees as well as general information that will help these green industry allies make better choices in in their tree selection efforts. Three events taking place in September are detailed here, with three more coming up in October and November. Check your calendars and join us!
