[FERNDALE] – Learn about the effective use of trees, sidewalks and other planning concepts during a free seminar offered by Sullivan Renaissance and the Sullivan County Division of Planning on Wednesday, December 7 at 6:00 p.m. at the CVI Building at 165 Sullivan Avenue in Ferndale.
The seminar is designed for Planning Board members, community volunteers and concerned citizens. Horticulturist Diana K. Weiner and planner Travis North will explain how development projects can have a valuable aesthetic impact by properly incorporating trees into the landscape. Using real examples, the presenters will illustrate the importance of a good landscape design from the start.
Topics to be covered include parking lot design, using trees for framing and screening, choosing the right tree for the right place, and the importance of structural soils. All attendees will receive a “Sullivan County Tree Selection Guide.” Planning and Zoning Board members will also receive a certificate of completion for continuing education credit.
Everyone is welcome, however pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be served.
