Next offering tentatively planned for Fall 2018. Registration will open when course date is confirmed.

Description

Trees are often the most overlooked plants in our landscapes…until something happens. Many diseases and pests of trees can result in future problems unless they are addressed when first observed. In this course, you'll learn to identify the common and not-so-common diseases and pests of ornamental trees, conifers, and shade trees, and discuss options for prevention and treatment. You'll also review basic tree biology and best management practices that will help to prevent potential problems.

Instructor
Stephen Schuckman is a professional horticulturist, municipal forester, and New Jersey Certified Tree Expert.
