    Chris Roddick

    Tree Health, Biology, and Ecology, and the Effects of Pruning and Tree Care

    Sunday 3/26/23

    3:00pm - 5:00pm PDT

    This Talk will be on Zoom

    What is tree health? How do we assess it? This talk will cover the many ways trees respond biologically to pruning, transplanting, and other tree care practices. We'll also look at the role that ecology plays in the garden and how encouraging more biodiversity can promote better tree, garden, and personal health.

    Chris Roddick is an arborist, climber, and consultant and for close to 30 years the Head Arborist at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Chris now consults with landscape architects, designers, and private clients on mature tree preservation, tree risk and health assessments, specialized pruning, and tree protection in construction. He is the author of The Tree Care Primer a guide to care for young, mature, and veteran trees. His web-site is sweetbirchtree.com
