Learning Objectives:

  • Examine nursery practices and the seven common issues to consider when selecting plant materials.
  • Discuss the resilience of root systems and how to set a path to longer-term plant health.
  • Review the challenges of construction oversight and how to minimize problems and misunderstandings.
  • Explore the challenges of post-completion management and maintenance, and how to improve institutional memory.
