Today there is an increased awareness by homeowners and municipalities for the need of trained and knowledgeable tree care workers. The green industry has responded to this demand for trained professionals by creating certification programs. Presently there are thousands of arborists that are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture, and horticulturalists certified by Landscape and Nurserymen Associations. These numbers continue to grow each year.
 
The Arborist Short Course is designed to address these relevant topics:
  • diagnosis of plant diseases and insect pests
  • nutrition and fertilization
  • selection, installation and establishment of trees and shrubs
  • soil and water interaction and management
  • plant identification
  • assessment and risk management
  • pruning
  • construction impacts and management
  • safety and climbing
  •  

Along with the topics discussed, participants will receive a copy of the ISA Arborists’ Certification Study Guide (a $115 value) and other printed materials.

 

Attending this short course will increase your working knowledge of tree care and improve your competitive edge. Hope to see you there.
