Ornamental Eucalyptus Forum

Ornamental Eucalyptus Forum

Saturday, January 28th, 9 am-12 noon, Merryville Community Center,

3024 South Pine St., Merryville, LA

            In honor of the Merryville’s self-proclaimed status as “The Eucalyptus Capital of Louisiana”, there will be a Forum to educate the citizens of Merryville and western Beauregard Parish about the various eucalyptus trees suitable for our location. Mr. Jeff McMillian, a Master Gardener, will describe appropriate eucalyptus trees and shrubs for landscaping. Mr. McMillian will also show slides of the best eucalyptus to plant in our area. There is no charge to attend.

            Also, foresters will be on hand to answer questions about the commercial eucalyptus plantations surrounding the Merryville area.

            For more information, please contact Keith Hawkins, County Agent, 337-463-7006.  To receive forest and wildlife updates by email, please send your request to khawkins@agcenter.lsu.edu. There is also an email list for LSU horticulture updates.
