At KCMGA’s regular February meeting, Urban Forester Pam Corder presented a program, “Trees in Fire and Drought,” that focused on the effect of the drought. She described the signs that let you know your tree is stressed and suggested ways to lessen the stress. Ms. Corder also addressed the state-wide impact of wildfires on our trees and suggested ways to make our trees and landscapes more resistant to wild fires.
