About this Event

THIS IS AN ONLINE ZOOM CLASS

Class Description:

Trees are the largest element in our residential gardens and landscapes, and special consideration needs to be given to tree selection and placement. In Arizona, we are blessed with an environment that allows for abundant sun and warmth; however, we are also challenged with the need to create shade for more energy efficiency and comfort. Picking the right tree for the right place is essential. In this class, Maricopa County Master Gardener Katie Coates will discuss benefits of trees in our landscape for our homes and communities, as well as types and varieties of trees best suited for our Arizona residential environment.

Participants will learn:

  • Understand the benefits of trees in our landscapes
  • List considerations needed for tree selection and placement
  • Select trees appropriate for the space and our low desert climate
  • Choose trees according to need (shade, food, wildlife habitat)
  • Install trees correctly and at the right time of year

Presented by Master Gardener Katie Coates

Katie has lived in Colorado, California, and Arizona and is attracted to the West, Southwest, and Rocky Mountain regions. After moving to Arizona fourteen years ago, Katie blended her skills in Rocky Mountain gardening with desert landscaping. She became a Certified Desert Landscape Designer through Desert Botanical Gardens and a UofA Maricopa County Certified Master Gardener. Katie offers desert landscaping design services focused on choosing the right plants for our unique climate as well as integrating more lush, blooming garden plants that require less water, helping her clients keep their water bills lower while benefiting the environment.
