Marietta Tree Keepers invites you to attend our next Sip n’ Stroll on October 25, 2019 at 5:30pm.
The event features a special neighborhood to tour with tree experts, identifying common opportunities and issues relating to trees. It’s free and open to the public ... and it’s BYOB. For this Sip n’ Stroll, we will stroll on the historic property of Brumby Hall in Marietta. Certified arborists, forester and landscape architects will lead the tour of the neighborhood, pointing out the many treasures and challenges that exist among our valuable stock of trees. The experts will offer practical advice as to how we can extend the life of our mature trees and how we can plan for their eventual replacement. The experts will discuss overhead utilities, proper pruning, protecting root systems and selecting the right specimen for the right location.
Visitors are welcome to bring their own evening refreshments and MTK
will provide water and light snacks. The event will ONLY be cancelled if it is raining heavy or lightning. Meet at Brumby Hall, 472 Powder Springs St SW Marietta GA 30064 and park at the location or in the Marietta Hilton Conference Center parking lot.
