In his latest book, The Nature of Oaks (Timber Press, March 2021), Doug Tallamy pays homage to a giant of the plant kingdom: the mighty oak tree. Oaks sustain a crucial and complex web of wildlife above ground, but are just as impressive underground, producing enormous root systems that make them champions of carbon sequestration, soil stabilization, and watershed management.
Join us for an informative webinar, as our accomplished and entertaining speaker shares his insights into the environmental role of oaks as well as how-to advice, including practical tips on how to plant and care for an oak, and information about the best oak species for your area.
