North Liberty Hosts Tree Care Workshop and Plantings to Replace Derecho Loss
The community is invited to learn how to select, plant and care for new trees as well as what to look out and to help plant trees that will be part of our neighborhood parks for years to come.
On Oct. 2 at 9:30 a.m., the Parks Department will host a free tree care workshop in Centennial Park (1565 St. Andrews Drive). At the workshop, residents can learn about tree selection, how to plant and care for new trees and common tree ailments, including Emerald Ash Borer, to watch out for.
Then, at 10:30 a.m., the public is invited to help plant new trees that will be part of our neighborhood parks for years to come. Trees will be planted in Beaver Kreek Park (281 S. Chestnut St.), Broadmoor (305 Lockview Ave.), Centennial Park (1565 St. Andrews Drive), Fox Run Pond (695 Fox Valley Drive), Penn Meadows Park (355 E. Penn St.) and at the Meade Barn (51 E.
