The replacement price of a mature tree can exceed $20,000, so you need to do everything you can to protect trees during a turf conversion.  A large, mature shade tree is the most valuable asset of any landscape and provides many important benefits.  

Trees reduce energy use by providing shade and evaporation cooling. They also add beauty, provide wildlife habitat, and sequester carbon.  Not only is it smart to preserve these valuable trees, but it is the responsibility of adept owners and landscape professionals to protect these high-value assets.
During this session you will learn:
  1. How to protect the tree’s root system during the conversion
  2. How much water to apply and where to apply it
  3. The consequences of damaged, cut-off tree roots.
  4. The proper irrigation products to use during the conversion.
