In 1876, there were 5,000 people and 12 trees in Cheyenne, WY. Early settlers quickly learned it was challenging to get plants to thrive in one of the harshest growing environments in the country. They struggled with the arid climate, alkaline soils, hail and constant wind.
Now Cheyenne can grow trees, but it isn’t easy and you need to know what to plant. Don’t miss the lecture on Tenacious Trees with expert arboricultureist, Scott Skogerboe.
