    Can simple production or propagation decisions impact landscape performance of container-grown trees? What are the returns on your investment in the size of planting stock? Will the “little dogs” catch the “big ones” in the end? In this free one-hour webinar, Dr. Michael Arnold of Texas A&M University will consider the big impacts of small planting stock selection decisions. Some of the findings might surprise you!
