Tree-related questions are one of the primary things that make the phone ring in an Extension office. This training is designed to teach Master Gardener volunteers about landscape trees and troubleshooting common tree problems so they can serve county residents and extend the outreach of Extension programming into the community. The training is design to go above and beyond what you learned in the Master Gardener Training Course. Highly qualified instructors will provide advanced training in the classroom as well as outdoor demonstrations of tree care practices.

Major topics include: Tree Benefits, Biology and Function, Site Selection, Tree Species Selection, Proper Planting Techniques, Proper Training and Pruning, Tree Nutrition, Common Stress Factors, Alleviating Soil Compaction, Abiotic Tree Problems, Common Pests and Diseases, and more. A final course agenda will be available prior to the training.

Cost: $175 per person. This fee covers all instruction, educational materials, two meals, and refreshments.

Deadline: Registration deadline is April 24, 2017. Please note that as we must order supplies and refreshments in advance, no refunds can be given after May 8, 2017.
