HATTIESBURG -- The use of native trees in urban/suburban landscaping will be the topic of a three-hour public workshop Friday, June 25, hosted by the Institute for Learning in Retirement at The University of Southern Mississippi. The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Peck House, located at 3601 Pearl Street in Hattiesburg.

Workshop instructor, Dr. Micheal Davis, professor of biology at Southern Miss, will discuss design elements and maintenance issues involved with tree selection and placement. He will provide live demonstrations of tree planting and pruning. Participants will have the opportunity to see both recent plantings and mature trees.

There is no fee for participation in this hands-on workshop.

The Southern Miss ILR is a recipient of the Mississippi Forestry Commission's Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Program Grant. For more information, contact the ILR at (601) 266-4210.
