This one-day conference is designed for managers and employees who work outdoors: arborists, tree wardens, municipal managers, DPW workers, city planners, surveyors, foresters and landscape architects. The University of Massachusetts Extension, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and the USDA Forest Service sponsor this annual conference.
Everyone who works outdoors - whether on the street, in a park or in a client’s backyard - is exposed to a variety of potential issues every day. This year’s conference is designed to help attendees learn to identify potential problems and to avoid being injured on the job. This year’s conference will cover the new arboricultural safety standard and the insects and diseases that we expect to see during 2012. We will also cover the latest in arboricultural research that is taking place right here in New England.
This conference is designed for everyone working outdoors with trees in New England.
Cost is $65 for first registration, $40/person for each additional registration from the same company.
