During the month of June the newly formed Urban Forestry Advisory program (formerly MUF) will be working with the West TN Chapter of TUFC to hold volunteer work days.  Most work will be scheduled on Saturdays from 10am-3pm at Elmwood cemetery.  Be looking for a post on the Grove for further information.  These will be great volunteer opportunities to complete your hours for the program.  If you are interested in what's new with the program, feel free to start a discussion on the UTMUF page.  Have a good Holiday!

Elmwood corrective pruning event has been canceled due to low volunteerism.  We hope to reschedule the event soon.  We also hope that you will come out to help!


Thanks Everyone

Nick -
I'm viewing photo on phone - it looks like the bark on the bottom half of trunk is missing. Is that an optical illusion?
Comment by UT Master Urban Foresters on January 4, 2011 at 2:20pm
I'm think more along the lines iof the tree itself...

Nick-based on your picture, it appears to have a non-functioning water catch basin for the tree that has been planted on a hillside; probably should expect some compromising above the root collar area as well should the backfill remain against the lower trunk.

Take a look at my user picture.  Anyone know what is wrong with this picture?

- the polysaccharide you speak of - augarosa - is a natural substance. What type of plabnt material is it found in? Do you have to process the plant material to extract it? It sounds like a discovery that could potentially change the world!

Great concept. It reminds me of this quote:

Except during the nine months before he draws his first breath, no man manages his affairs as well as a tree does.

-- George Bernard Shaw
