In the aftermath of Winter Storm Uri, many North Texas residents are wondering how their trees have faired and how to help aid their recovery. In this presentation Emily Plauché, Urban Forestry Research Coordinator with the Texas Trees Foundation, will cover freeze damage and impacts on trees, recommendations, and steps to guide residents in making decisions to promote tree health and safety. She will then transition to talking about the upcoming fall planting season and how to select the correct tree species, how to plant your tree, and tree care after planting.
