David Bosco, the second generation owner and president of Wildwood Nursery & Garden Center in East Greenwich, will highlight some of the latest trends in the nursery industry, including a new brand of trees that emphasize the tree as a source of enjoyment in the American landscape and how the rapidly changing practices of online sales will significantly impact the industry. The program will also touch upon improved methods and products for growing and establishing trees for long-term sustainability, and a new approach for selecting trees for the landscape, based less on the features of the tree and more on the ways it can match your individual landscape to your personality.
Mr. Bosco is a Rhode Island certified horticulturist and licensed arborist, and holds bachelor degrees in business finance and landscape architecture.
