The Sierra Foothills Chapter of the California Native Plant Society and the Master Gardeners of Tuolumne County have teamed up to co-host a special presentation by Ted Kipping on Thursday, May 9th, beginning at 6pm at the Senior Center, 540 Greenley Road, Sonora. His presentation will be on “The Rhizosphere: Trees Underground – their function, anatomy and rich microbial associations.”
The presentation shares the amazing insights and lab work of the late Dr Alex Shigo, a giant in tree research and some of his world-wide colleagues. Hopefully his discoveries and images will blow your mind. Devotee, Ted Kipping, will be “channeling” Dr Shigo’s discoveries. It will improve your understanding and success with trees.
Ted Kipping studied Natural History at Columbia University in N.Y., worked at the Strybing Arboretum in Golden Gate Park and operated an arboricultural enterprise for forty-three years. Ted is both a Certified and Consulting Arborist as well as a Life Member of CNPS. Ted has consulted in seven botanic gardens, lectured in thirteen and delivered twelve lectures on Modern Arboriculture in Prague including one to the Cabinet of the Czech Republic.
The public is welcome to attend the free presentation. Seating will begin at 5:30pm with the presentation beginning at 6pm.
