Fall Color Workshop Set Nov. 7 in Atlanta
Whether you just admire the trees in your yard and neighborhood or it's your job to keep them looking their best, "Fall Colors" is a workshop made for you Nov. 7 in Atlanta.

The workshop on urban tree management will be at the North Fulton Government Annex on Roswell Road. It's offered in the morning and afternoon, but for different audiences.

The first session, from 9 a.m. to noon, will be directed to homeowners and Master Gardeners. The afternoon program, from 1:30 to 4:30, is tailored to professional landscapers, grounds crews and tree service operators.

Both Feature Coder

Both programs will feature Kim Coder of the University of Georgia's Warnell School of Forest Resources. Coder will address tree foliage pigmentation -- the whats, whys and hows of fall color.

An entomologist will be on hand, too, to provide the latest on managing tree pests in urban areas.

To learn more, call the UGA Extension Service office in 0008 Fulton 00CF (770-551-7670), Gwinnett (678-377-4010), Cobb (770-528-4070) or 0006 DeKalb 2721 (404-298-4080) County.

To preregister, call Rose Lewis at (770) 551-7670 no later than Nov. 2. The workshop fee is $20, with all proceeds going to the Big Trees Forest Preserve conservation program.
