By: Mike Woods – J&S Landscape
Coming from a small Iowa town, Mike had the opportunity to grow up around gardens and farms. Since finishing a horticulture degree, he has continued to work and study gardens and how to skillfully create them for his many landscape projects. Mike has made Colorado his home since 1985 and incorporated gardening ideas and inspiration from our region’s most skilled garden experts. He takes pride in developing useful and interactive gardens that burst with color and have that special Colorado feeling. His passion is gardening at his home with his wife, chasing his dogs down local trails, and learning more about the countless options he can use for your home’s landscape.

By: Jamin Mayer – – Parker Tree Service, I.S.A. Certified Arborist, I.S.A. Qualified Tree Risk Assessor
There are pathogens, insects, rodents, and dare I say; humans, which can have a negative effect on trees. These stressors would be considered biotic stressors. Abiotic stressors are environmental stressors; extreme temperature fluctuations, soil chemistry, soil structure, soil percolation, mechanical injury, wind/snow loads, drought, etc… Several stressors exposed to a tree will lead to the outright death of a tree. Learn about the common stressors which affect our local trees. Get a chance to recognize stress, decline, and death in a tree. Educate yourself and educate others with the content from this class.
