In this historic setting on Georgia’s enchanting coast, we’ll hear outstanding talks from noted speakers on the coming hurricanes, sea level rise, and the effects on trees; healthy root systems; tree species selection and pruning for resilient trees; combatting invasive species; the ecology of live oaks; and more. Speakers include Dr. Kim Coder, Professor at Warnell School of Forest and Natural Resources at University of Georgia and other noted experts. Included in the conference experience will be a tour of Jekyll’s forest of pines and live oak killed by wave action, Jekyll’s live oaks affected by salt spray, and a viewing of the “Captain Wylie Scenic Corridor” tree plantings funded in part by Georgia ReLeaf.
