• Carmel will celebrate Arbor Day with Free ‘Trees At Risk’ Workshop

    On Saturday morning, November 15, 2014, the public is invited to attend the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea’s annual celebration of Arbor Day. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Carmel City Hall.

    The Carmel Forest and Beach Commission is presenting an educational program, “Trees at Risk – Managing Your Trees in Times of Drought,” to provide guidance to homeowners on tree and landscape care under drought conditions.

    The program is free and open to all.

    Carmel City Forester Mike Branson will speak on the condition of Carmel’s urban forest and on management practices to help your trees through drought conditions. Independent scientist and environmental consultant Lee Klinger will speak on soil health and on ways to nurture your soil to benefit your trees and plants. Landscape architect Paul Deering will discuss plant selection and landscape watering strategies and priorities. He will also lead a walking tour at the end of the program to show examples of landscape practices and choices in nearby homes.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm.
