Tree University: Native Trees In Your Landscape

Which native trees are exceptional in your Ohio landscape, and which ones should you avoid? Kathy Smith, OSU’s Extension Program Director in Forestry will give us these answers and more during this 1-hour webinar and Q&A.

Kathy Smith joined ODNR, Division of Forestry, in 1990 as a watershed forester. She covered a 10 county area in west central Ohio designated as the Top of Ohio RC&D. In her role as a watershed forester Kathy worked with numerous watershed projects promoting riparian buffer restoration and developing management plans for both upland and riparian forests.

In 2001 Kathy moved to her position within the School, serving first as an Extension Associate then later as Program Director for the Ohio Woodland Stewards Program. She is responsible for coordinating, promoting and teaching programs targeted towards Ohio’s many woodland owners and natural resource professionals.
