Sustainable Urban Forestry – Umass Summer School July 13 – July 17, 2015
The Arboriculture & Community Forestry program will once again host the course “Sustainable Arboriculture”. This course emphasizes the art, business, and science of caring for trees in our communities. Last year, students spent their time on campus, learning all the basics of tree care. Umass faculty (Prof. Harper, Dr. Kane, and Dr. Ryan) taught classes in pruning, cabling, fertilizing, PHC, tree ID , and tree climbing and pruning. The course is a 1-week intensive course which balances academic study of the science and business of arboriculture while offering an introduction to the basic skills required to work in the field with trees.
