A couple of months ago Dr. Alison O'Connor (CSU Extension), Dr. Tony Koski (CSU Extension), Tyler Mason (Horticulturist at Cheyenne Botanic Gardens) and I got together to film some short videos on tree selection and care.

By the end of the day we had purposely bare-rooted container nursery stock, did our best to kill a callery pear with a string trimmer and learned the importance of team work when lifting heavy objects.
We learned a lot and all things considered, I think it turned out pretty well. Here is the final product (eventually we may break it into shorter videos):
A special thanks to Adams County Colorado Master Gardener Anthony Pressgrove who volunteered his time to edit the video for us.
