Do you know the trees of Southern California? We have one of the most diverse urban forests in the USA. This lecture will cover 15-20 tree species followed by a walk in the Arboretum to see the trees that were covered during the lecture.

Dr. Jerrold Turney, plant pathologist and certified arborist, will teach you to identify trees, their growth habit, their native country, how they should be cared for, any common diseases or insect pests that attack them, and the best place in your garden to plant them.

Dr. Turney has served as the curator of the camellia gardens at the Huntington Library and
Botanic Gardens, a research horticulturist at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, and is currently the plant pathologist for the Department of Agricultural Commissioner/Weights and Measures
for the County of Los Angeles.
