“The trees encountered on a country stroll

Reveal a lot about that country’s soul…

A culture is no better than its woods.”

― W.H.Auden


Join us at Bnai Keshet on Monday, February 12, for the presentation “Ask the Arborist: Keeping Trees and Shrubs Healthy,” by Brian Rombough.

Doors open at 12:30 to see our members' dsigns and exhibits. Our general meeting will begin at 1PM, followed by Brian’s lecture on how to keep trees and shrubs in our landscapes healthy and thriving. He will focus on recognizing the signs of plant decline and how to diagnose and correct common tree and shrub health issues.  Brian will also discuss some of the recent challenging developments in our area; namely, emerald ash borer, bacterial leaf scorch, and the spotted lanternfly. 


Brian is a Licensed Tree Expert and Certified Arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture, as well as co-owner of American Tree Experts, Inc., of Montclair, which will be celebrating its 90th anniversary next year.  Brian runs the plant health care division of American Tree Experts, Inc., where he specializes in diagnosing plant diseases and insect problems.  He is the author of "Sequence of Spring," a book on flowering trees and shrubs.


We will be holding a raffle, so please bring cash with you to purchase tickets.
