The Woody Plant Conference was created to educate, prompt, and stimulate conversation about woody plants in our landscapes among nursery and garden center personnel, landscape designers, horticulturists, and keen gardeners. Each year the committee chooses experienced, knowledgeable speakers to share their interest and knowledge of woody plants. This talk is one topic at the Conference and explores Rutgers Breeding program, specifically for the genera Cornus and Corylus and the new introductions that have come from the program.
The committee attempts to create a balanced conference offering by selecting lectures for all members of our audience. They strive to effectively address commercial/retail issues, take an in-depth look at specific genera of woody plants, explore how to use woody plants in the landscape, as well as practical issues like pest and disease management.
The Woody Plant Conference provides a great opportunity to learn about the latest trends and concerns about woody plants as well as an opportunity to meet other woody plant advocates and share experiences.
