    It has been seven years since we lost Dr. Alex Shigo.  I first had the opportunity to meet him in 1984 when the Colorado Tree Coalition (back then it was the Coilordo Urban Forestry Council) co-sponrored the National Urban Tree Symposium.  We began a great friendship, which brought him to Colorado another seven times to share his knowledge with rocky mountain arborists.  Going on thirty years, I have witnessed many changes in Arboriculture.

    Take a minute or two to think back about how Alex and many of the other great educators helped form your career.


    As Alex always said, “Touch Trees”
