Caring for “SHADE PROVIDERS” as Mother Nature Intended

Presented by Matt Evans of Ryan Lawn and Tree


Matt Evans is a native of Kansas City who now lives in Lenexa.  He began his interest in horticulture while working for Family Tree Nursery through high school and continuing on through college.  After attainment of his degree in horticulture, Matt began working at Ryan Lawn and Tree.  He has been with RLT for 21 years as an arborist and devotes much time to sharing his understanding of mother natures’ plan for trees.   We can improve our Hosta environment by gaining a better understanding of the relationship between trees, woody plants and the perennials we choose to grow alongside them.


Matt is a Board Certified Master Arborist with The International Society of Arboriculture, as well as an ASCA Registered Consulting Arborist.  Matt really enjoys sharing his knowledge and is very enthusiastic about answering all of our questions.  But come prepared, Matt has already cautioned us that he likes to ask questions too!  Don’t be surprised if he turns the tables a bit and asks us to feed his curiosity.
