Mature trees, whether at your home or local park, provide a welcoming presence for people, plants and animals alike. Trees that tower over us may seem healthy but the urban lifestyle doesn't always suit mature tree needs and resultant stressors can often be difficult to identify. Join arborist Ian Bruce to learn the symptoms exhibited by mature trees. Ian will also lend his years of experience teaching and working in the arboriculture (tree care) industry, with an informal walk through the gardens to point out signs and symptoms of declining health, structural defects that pre-dispose trees to failure and maintenance practices he would prescribe for trees along the way.
