Urban Tree Care - 174HRT426
Learn how trees survive the many perils of the urban environment. Soil compaction, construction damage, and land development practices can lead to tree decline and early mortality in trees. Examine the biology of trees, and learn how they respond to changes in the urban environment, particularly their response to natural and man- made stress. Explore techniques for assessing and preserving tree health and vigor, as well as new diagnostic tools and methods for tree and site analysis in developed urban sites.
