The first workshop to be held “in the west” (Amherst) in a long time has filled up quickly. Thank you to all for your interest – it should be a great program!
The registration brochure is now available for this July 22nd workshop at the middle school in Amherst. Sponsored by Stihl Equipment in cooperation with the University of Massachusetts. Find more details in the brochure or in Upcoming Events. Don’t delay – this class limited to 35 people.
UMass Summer College is a pre-college experience for high school sophomores and juniors who come to UMass for 2 weeks in July to learn about different majors. For the first time, Brian Kane, Dennis Ryan and Rick Harper will be offering a 2-week intensive course in arboriculture and urban forestry that will balance academic study of the science and business of arboriculture with an introduction to the basic skills required to work in the field. This should be a great recruiting tool to attract more young people to the field of arboriculture and urban forestry. Help spread the word!
This popular annual workshop is already filled. To be placed on the waiting list, please call 781-894-4759 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If demand is sufficient, we will attempt to schedule a second class.
The weather is (finally!) getting warmer, and thoughts are turning to tree planting and Arbor Day celebrations. It’s time to make sure you have seedlings for those events – the ordering deadline is April 16. Don’t delay – fill out the seedling order brochure now.
