A Midsummer Night's Dream Walking Tour
Speaker: Dr. Dave Roberts, PhD., Senior Academic Specialist, MSU Extension
"Get your hiking boots on and don your fatigues, we’re going on a walking tour! As returning guests to the Edsel and Eleanor Ford Estate, we’ll be able to catch up on a variety of issues ranging from Dutch Elm Disease, to Oak Wilt, to Trellis Rust, to Boring Borers and to Conifer Conundrums… among other subjects that just might pop up on a moment’s notice. Although you might think of this as a Shakespearian comedy involving love-struck youngsters and fairies, this is serious stuff! Join Dr. Dave as he leads us on an educational escapade on this midsummer night!"
A beautiful afternoon for an MGIA (Michigan Green Industry Association) walking tour! We gathered on the grounds of the spectacular Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, where Dr. Dave Roberts led our tour. As arborists, is is very important to continue our education, and we saw some amazing trees and pesky pests.
