  • 3:00P | Entomological (R)Evolution of Evergreens: Plant Pests New and Old

    Insects and mites are inevitable, generally welcome (even necessary) residents in gardens and landscapes, but some can spell trouble. Southern pine beetle is dramatically changing our pine forests and can be a serious threat to landscape plants, hemlock woolly adelgid kills host trees, box tree moth is changing the way we look at and use boxwoods. Bush crickets might be responsible for all that new damage to your rhododendron leaves. This presentation will discuss the evolving insect world we and our landscape conifers and broad-leaved evergreens now find ourselves in.

  • 1:30P | Conifer Selections for Long Island

    Conifers are an immense grouping of plants that are an integral part of the Long Island landscape. They are, found in home miniature gardens, as focal and specimen pieces in everyday residential and corporate plantings and widely used as screening material. But exactly what is a conifer? We will discuss the most common conifer groups, the most utilized varieties in our landscapes, some lesser-known varieties and newer introductions to hit the market (and the process of getting here).

  • 11:15A | Thinking Outside the Box: Selecting Alternatives to Common Broadleaved Evergreens

    There are many tried and true broadleaved evergreens used in the garden such as rhododendron and azaleas, cherry laurel, mountain laurel, holly and viburnum. These popular mainstays offer bold texture, dark green foliage and showy flowers in spring. But some of these plant groups are quite overused, resulting in a monotonous, vulnerable landscape with little to no diversity. This lecture will offer some new and underutilized genera of broadleaved evergreens and some lesser-known species and cultivars of some popular genera we know and love as well. Special emphasis will be put on proper selection, pest and deer resistance, specific care and maintenance, landscape function and benefits in the landscape.

  • 9:45A | Evergreens and Pathogens: Changing with the Times

    Fascinating and frustrating pathogens of evergreen plants will be featured in this presentation. Phytophthora root rot continues to challenge woody plants, foliar fungal diseases are increasing, and other exciting pathogens are establishing on our landscapes. Recommendations for providing the best care possible for our favorite evergreen species will be featured.

  • 8:45A | Adding Diversity with Evergreen Collections

    Bayard Cutting Arboretum is home to an incredible array of plant collections. Highlights are, of course, the conifer collection, but additionally the arboretum has a slow growing conifer collection, dwarf conifer collection, holly collection, and oak collection. We will explore the history behind the design, plant acquisition, and construction and planting of these gardens. Special attention will be paid to key specimens that can be incorporated into the home landscape.

  • 3:00 P | Embracing Change & Wildness for Healthy Landscapes

    We are often tasked with building landscapes that appear mature upon installation, changing minimally: a “perpetually picture-perfect” manicured aesthetic. However, the healthiest landscapes see a lot of evolution! Resilient and diverse plant communities start small, develop through ecological succession, and see dramatic transformations over time. We can design our landscapes and gardens as dynamic, changing plant communities. Utilizing native plants’ natural life spans and life cycles can reduce maintenance, undermine invasives, and maximize seasonal interest. By modeling our landscapes on dynamic natural systems, we can better plan their lush futures, and enjoy the wonder of their evolution along the way.

  • 1:30 P | Altered Sites, Adjusted Plant Lists

    Infrastructure, budgets, and nursery availability all guide designers as they look to reach their project goals. With the added volatility of climate and frequency of storms designers must use all the tools at their disposal to achieve sites that are beautiful and successful. Sometimes project sites require wholesale reconstruction and elements like suspended pavements can ensure sufficient soil volume for trees long term success. Other times site constraints restrict soil volumes or create exaggerated microclimates that require thoughtful adjustments to a planting palette. How far can a site be altered to accommodate a desired plant list? Should we instead be planting for the sites we are given? James will share select sites from the past decade of work in and around New York City and highlight the tools he and his colleagues have developed to cope with some of the most challenging projects they have faced.
