Can anyone recommend an arborist? I've got some trees that need cutting back and I want someone who won't kill the tree and won't fall off a ladder (both of which are things I could plausibly do by accident).

“Hardscaping” for Your Urban Garden

Somerville Garden Club members Dorothy Africa and Eleanor Ramsay will give presentations on the creative use of plantings and materials to mask unfortunate views or brighten up dark areas, in the small gardens typical of many Somerville and Cambridge neighborhoods. Dorothy Africa will present practical ideas for “hardscaping” -landscaping in a hard place – with inexpensive and creative materials. Eleanor Ramsay will present a slide show of how she turned her literal hardscape, an asphalt parking lot backyard, into a shady garden retreat.

Tickets for the Somerville Garden Tour will be on sale at the meeting. There will also be the usual Q and A and raffle. All Somerville Garden Club meetings are free and open to the public. 7-9pm. Meetings are held the at the Tufts Administration Building, (TAB), 167 Holland Street, second floor, wheelchair accessible. Parking is available, and the building is a ten-minute walk from the Davis Square MBTA stop.
