Tim Kennelty, a Master Gardener, Master Forester and Master Naturalist Volunteer, shares his passion for native trees and shrubs on this episode of Nature Calls: Conversations from the Hudson Valley. He covers a wide range of topics regarding native trees and shrubs in the New York landscape including a definition, their role in supporting birds and pollinators, considerations when selecting a native tree for your yard, and many of his favorite native trees including oaks, birches, cherries, dogwoods, spice bushes, button bushes, and more.
