All About Trees Class

“All About Trees”

Each year the Tree Stewards offer the “All About Trees” course. Course participants learn proper planting, maintenance, and pruning of trees. Our knowledge of trees is constantly changing as we learn more about these fundamental elements of our natural world. These annual training sessions strive to keep up with this evolving knowledge.

Training will include:

  • Basic tree anatomy, biology and life functions
  • Soils, water and nutrition
  • Selecting the right tree for the right spot
  • Tree identification
  • Tree ID Walk (field trip)
  • Landscaping with trees
  • Planting and site analysis
  • Tree Health and care
  • Pruning and identifying hazard trees that should be removed.
  • Pruning Demo and Tools (field trip)
  • Urban Forestry
  • Class Tree planting

The program uses materials from “Trees Virginia,” developed by the Virginia Urban Forest Council. Classes are taught by ISA certified arborists, nurserymen, landscapers, horticulturalists, and Tree Stewards.  The course ends with the hands-on planting of a “Class Tree.”

CEUs available for ISA Arborists.
