By By Theresa Caswell, Director

---- — NEWTON —As we approach the upcoming winter season, an informative program has been scheduled for Wed., November 13 at 6:00 p.m. to welcome Mr. Fred Borman, Rockingham County Field Specialist in Natural Resources for the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension.  Mr. Borman will present “Storm Proofing Your Property:  The Effects of Wind, Ice and Snow on Trees, People and Property”.

In the past few years, New Hampshire has sustained severe tree damage from hurricanes, windstorms, ice and snowstorms, and the tornado of July 2008.  Homeowners and businesses lost electric power for days at a time. Buildings and property were damaged or destroyed by falling trees and branches.  This presentation will cover basic tree biology as well as provide property owners with information they can use to plant and maintain healthy trees and what defects to look for in trees that may result in the failure of a tree or branches during a significant storm.  This program is free and open to the public.
