Many thanks to Robert Olinger and all the people of Forestry Resources for hosting the March FNGLA meeting. We met at the Naples Botanical Garden and the crowd was so big (over 120 people) we had to break up in two groups for the walking tour.
Over a dozen members of the American Society of Landscape Architects joined us to learn from Dr. Ed Gilman, professor at the University of Florida. The topic was Urban Tree Planting and Care.
It also looked like a family reunion of Royal Palm Board members from years gone by. In attendance were leaders from the ’80’s: Amil Villani of Sunnygrove, and Royal Palm Chapter past-Presidents: Jeff Poulton and Ed Zentz.
And, the future generation of leaders attended: several FCHP students and non-members responded to the invitation.
After a delicious meal and fact-filled presentation the night concluded with a promotion and giveaway of over $400.00 of Silky pruning saws.
