Learning for Life: Planning your tree planting

As winter recedes into spring it is a great time to look at our yards and plan for the future. The badly damaged trees that need to be replaced, the pruning that needs to be done, the perfect spot for the new shrubs, can all be planned for now. Cooperative Extension Service has free publications available on “Tree and Shrub Varieties, Tree Planting, Pruning, Mulching” and much more. With trees we plant for the future, but need to plan for it now. Your local Cooperative Extension Service is your year round resource for a variety of topics, visit us today at: http://www.uaf.edu/ces/districts/kenai/ to find this publication and more. We also have hard copies in our office located at 43961 Kalifornsky Beach Road, Suite A, Soldotna, AK 99669, Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Call us at 262-5824. We are “Learning for Life.”
