Evaluating Trees for Hazards
at the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania

Wednesday, November 19; 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Associate Director of Urban Forestry, Morris Arboretum

Robert Wells

Are your trees a beautiful hazard? Tree defects can be examined and risks assessed if you are trained to detect and rate them. Decay, cavities, cracks, root rots, and poor limb connections are but a few of the defects that plague trees. Learn how to examine and measure defects, and determine when a tree should be removed. An indoor lecture and discussion will be followed by an outdoor practical examination of a defective tree. A calculator is helpful for some aspects of this class.

Fee: $110 (including lunch)
