Cross Timbers Native Plants promotes conservation, research and utilization of the native plants in the rich biological region west of Fort Worth.
We hold a monthly meeting and we also sponsor native plant sales, plant rescues, field trips to areas of interest and classes on a variety of subjects such as plant identification and propagation.
Meetings (2017 program list)
Our regular monthly meetings are on the second Thursday of the month, usually at Cherry Park in Weatherford (map).
Meetings begin promptly at 6:30 pm with a social time and club announcements followed by an educational program at about 7:00 pm.
All of our meetings are free and open to the public.
February 9th Program
For anyone with any kind of oak tree on your property or in your favorite park or landscape, just the mention of oak wilt is devastating. The deadly fungal disease will be the focus of the Feb. 9 meeting in Weatherford of the Cross Timbers Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas. Rachel McGregor, staff forester with the Texas A&M Forest Service based in Granbury, will discuss aspects of oak wilt including identification, spread, management of diseased trees and prevention. She can explain correct tree pruning, which oaks are most susceptible, how to dispose of diseased wood, fungicide treatments and current research into the disease.
