Fall Workshops

Tree Identification and Selection Urban Forest Workshop

Arborists and landscape professionals increasingly deal with the growing demand and expectation for trees in the landscape. This one-day workshop will introduce professionals to the identification and selection of landscape trees.

You’ll learn plant nomenclature and anatomy; identification of common landscape trees and tree selection. The workshop will include classroom instruction and outdoor demonstrations to provide hands-on reinforcement.

People who should consider attending include: Community forestry, parks and public works employees; managers, tree board members, tree service, nursery and landscape employees; restorationists, Friends’ groups and other professionals in the areas of urban forestry and horticulture.

There will be three opportunities to attend one of these workshops.
