Holiday Trees 101

By Kathleen Dannenhold

If putting up a holiday  tree is on your weekend agenda, you may want to check the on-line Elisabeth C. Miller Library at UW Botanic Gardens for tips on introducing a living tree to your home. The site also offers suggestions about using cut trees in your garden when the holidays are over.

Not interested in decorating a tree? How about eating conifer seedlings, as a lemony addition to salads? Details available from UW Farm.

(By the way, UW arborists remind readers that campus trees and tree limbs are not available for cutting, and that violators can face stiff fines.  They ask that everyone remember that our beautiful campus trees are for everyone to enjoy!)
