Winter Lecture Series: Planting Trees for Tomorrow- When Do They Need Cut Down?

Tuesday, February 07, 2023 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM Cost: Free

Knowing when to maintain the trees in your backyard is a time sensitive matter. What limbs pose a threat to my home? What species generally drop limbs more than others? And what can I do with the remaining wood that was harvested? Free to the public. Sponsored by the Friends of Wildwood. Lectures will be held in-person only.

Speaker Bios:

Jon Schach is a Penn State graduate with a Bachelors in Biology and has a Master’s in Environmental Science from Antioch University. He has worked in commercial tree care for over 20 years currently serving as General Manager for Good’s Tree and Lawn Care.  Jon is an ISA Board Certified Master Arborist and a Qualified Tree Risk Assessor. Jon’s greatest passion is sharing a richer understanding of trees with others.  Outside of work, Jon enjoys tinkering, and adventuring outdoors with his wife, two kids, and dog.

For Nate Sholley, of Sholley’s Craft Shop and Sawmill, what started as a nagging responsibility during his youth has turned into a business and more than that, a way of life. Using the sawmill and other tools available, Nathan takes trees and other raw materials, and stewards them, putting God’s creation on display. Most notably, his “paint swatches” show the many variations of color and appearance that trees have to offer. Nathan gains the most gratification from being able to share his “eye” with other people- often coming alongside them and teaching them how to look at things with a renewed perspective that gives value.
