The City of Defiance hosted “Young Tree Training” on March 5, 2020. The workshop was conducted by Stephanie Miller, regional Urban Forester, ODNR Division of Forestry. Ms. Miller provided instruction on the proper pruning and training of young shade trees. The program included a field training session where techniques were demonstrated on City street trees, and participants received supervised hands-on training.
City workers routinely maintain street trees as part of an ongoing effort to increase their health, beauty and safety, and to maintain Defiance’s
status as Tree City USA.
