Healthy Trees for the Urban Environment

Trees are an investment in our landscape, for both financial and aesthetic reasons, and choosing, planting, and maintaining the best trees for our local conditions is important. Tree Fest will feature information on choosing, planting and maintaining trees that provide an important element for our quality of life and that are well-suited for our area of Kansas.

Tree care professionals will be on hand at the 2018 Tree Festival to share their advice on these topics, and more, on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at the Sedgwick County Extension Education Center, 21st and Ridge Road in Wichita.
