Upcoming Sponsor Spotlights:

Bartlett Tree Experts Featuring Dr. Tom Smiley, PHD discussing trees in the urban environment
Wednesday, July 10 10am-12pm
19331 21st Ave. W, Lynnwood 98036
Please send your RSVP to Sandi Hain at shain@bartlett.com

Dr. Tom Smiley, PHD, from the Bartlett Tree Research Laboratory will discuss tree health in urban settings including a lively Q&A on the on-going challenges of climate change in managing and caring for trees.

His presentation, 'Growing Tree Roots Under Pavement’, will feature research comparing different methods of promoting tree root growth under pavement. This will include discussion of two long-term projects that compared structural soil mixes and supported pavement options. Tree roots can grow well under pavement if the project is well planned and installed.

Following the presentation there will be a Q&A session with Dr. Smiley to discuss his 2024 local tree health observations including Mountain Pine Beetle damage, Emerald Ash Borer’s threat to Seattle’s trees, Phytophthora root rot and foliar fungal prevalences.

Dr, Tom Smiley, PHD, is a Senior Arboricultural Researcher at the Bartlett Tree Research Laboratory in Washington State. He is active in the arboriculture industry and has co-authored many of the ISA's Best Management Practices and the CTLA's Guide for Plant Appraisal 10th edition.
