On September 17, 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., at the North Myrtle Beach Library (910 1st Avenue South), the public is invited to participate in a free seminar, Talking Trees Two, the second in a three part North Myrtle Beach Tree City Board series of seminars on the value, care and maintenance of trees. Topics will include how green infrastructure works in our communities, tree selection tips, how hard trees work for us (the benefits), and tree care for the homeowner.
Talking Trees Two will be led by Lois Edwards, formerly the South Carolina Forestry Commissions Urban Forester for the Pee Dee Region.
Edwards graduated from Clemson University in 1979 and started work for the S.C. Forestry Commission. She was a rural project forester for Horry County from 1979 to 1999 and an Urban Forester from 1999 until 2010. Although Lois officially retired in 2010, she still assists the Commission in her former position on a part-time basis. She is also a member of the International Society of Arborculture, and has served that organization as a past president of its Southern Chapter. She is on the Board of Trees South Carolina, a registered forester in the State of South Carolina, and a certified arborist. Those who know Edwards like to say that she has forgotten more about trees than most of us will ever know, and she has long been a friend to North Myrtle Beach.
Talking Trees Two is sponsored by the City of North Myrtle Beach, the North Myrtle Beach Tree City Board and Horry County Memorial Library
