Winter in Sonoma County
|Year of the Tree 2023
Trees are in every aspect of our gardens and the surrounding natural world. In 2023 Sonoma County Master Gardeners will work on a myriad of tree-related projects. We will weave together these projects and stories and stress their importance in a world of climate change and other natural disasters. Our first project, Climate Forward Trees, promotes the use of appropriate tree species to plant now that will thrive in the future.
Click here for more information about the Climate Forward Trees project including the list of Climate Forward Trees developed by us in partnership with City of Santa Rosa Water, videos on planting and maintaining healthy trees, tree resources, climate projections and much more.
