  • Shawn Kenaley, Finger Lakes Community College professor, will give a crash course in tree biology and stress responses.
  • Noreen Riordan, an ISA Certified arborist with Bartlett Tree Experts, will be demonstrating how a gypsy moth inspection goes, what to expect, and what you can do to help your trees.
