The Green Landscape Group in Rossmoor has created a class series called “Seeing Trees” designed to help us see and appreciate trees in a whole new way. These walking tour classes take place periodically spring through fall and will meet for a strolling lecture in different parts of Rossmoor.
As the class starts, the instructor will provide background information about the concept of “seeing trees”. Participants will then be invited to look at trees and evaluate them using specific criteria. As we walk around each location, we will view and critique the trees we see in real-time. There will be many opportunities for questions and dialogue.
The class series was inspired by Tree Guidelines written by the class instructor, Richard McPherson, and endorsed by Rossmoor Landscape Department. This is a best practices guide which explains the criteria for selecting and placing trees, as well as for their planting and removal.
