Glendale offersfree Green-Living class on April 18
Glendale, Ariz. –– Trees offer many benefits such as providing oxygen, cleaning the air and keeping us cool. Learn how to give back and properly care for your trees at the free “Green-Living” class on Wednesday, April 18 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Glendale Main Library, 5959 W. Brown St.
Rebecca Senior, a Master Gardener and Arborist, will explain tree selection, planting, pruning and watering. “Trees are a long-term investment and understanding how to care for our “leafy friends” will save you time and money,” said Senior. This class is offered by the Glendale Water Services Department to promote the selection and care of Arizona-friendly trees best suited to our arid climate.
Just in time for Arbor Day, information tags showing the environmental and economic value of trees will be displayed on 12 specimen trees in the Glendale Xeriscape Garden that surrounds the Glendale Main Library. “Trees help improve our environment by providing clean air and water, shade and energy savings, and wildlife habitat. Healthy mature trees can even raise your property value,” said Senior.
The Green-Living class series will continue each month with new topics, guest speakers and how-to resources for creating a more sustainable home. The next Green-Living class will be held on May 26 at 10 a.m. and will cover irrigation repair and maintenance.
