On May 30, Marietta Tree Keepers will conduct their annual Spring Sip n’ Stroll. The event begins at Marietta Educational Garden Center, 505 Kennesaw Ave., Marietta. Sign-in at the Garden Center, where the tour will begin.
The event features a special neighborhood to tour with tree experts, identifying common opportunities and issues relating to trees. It’s free and open to the public, and it’s BYOB.
This stroll will be down the neighborhood streets of Kennesaw Avenue. Certified arborists and landscape architects will lead the tour of the neighborhood, pointing out the many treasures and challenges that exist among our valuable stock of trees. The experts will offer practical advice for extending the life of mature trees and planning for their eventual replacement. The experts will discuss overhead utilities, proper pruning, protecting root systems and selecting the right specimen for the right location.
Visitors are welcome to bring their own evening refreshments and MTK will provide water and light snacks. The event will only be cancelled if it is raining heavy or lightening.
