"Trees: Choose Wisely and Plant Properly" will be presented by Master Gardener Jackie Burkey at noon Tuesday, Oct. 9, at the Brainerd Public Library.

"Which tree should you choose? How big should it be? What is the best way to plant it? How do you take care of your new planting for the first year or two?" are a few of the things a person will learn if they attend. People will learn what the latest research shows guaranteeing a leafy success.
