About the Class
Learn about one of our favorite Pacific Northwest trees, the Pacific madrone (Arbutus menziesii). We will discuss the ecology and range of madrone, how to grow and take care of it, its pollinators and wildlife associations, and health concerns such as diseases and climate change. Bring your madrone questions for the Q and A and find out how you can help preserve this tree.
