    Webinar 1: Expanding Your Business: Land Care Practices on Small-Acreage Properties

    Thursday, October 22, 2020

    Interview provided for viewing before webinar: Rich Anacker with A&A Tree Experts. 

    Description: This introductory webinar addresses issues around improving woodland health and the motivations and interests of clientele for natural area services. The Woods in Your Backyard educational program has targeted small acreage owners for many years and much has been learned about the potential market for land care services. This first session will provide an overview of land care practices, relevant certifications and the potential benefits this can provide your business. We will also discuss communicating your message to clientele.
