This training is designed to teach Master Gardener volunteers about landscape trees and troubleshooting common tree problems so they can serve county residents and extend the outreach of Extension programming into the community.  The training is designed to go above and beyond what you learned in the Master Gardener training course.  Highly-qualified instructors will provide advanced training in the classroom as well as outdoor demonstrations of tree care practices.

Major topics include: tree benefits, biology and function, site selection, tree species selection, proper planting techniques, proper training and pruning, tree nutrition, common stress factors, alleviating soil compaction, abiotic tree problems, common pests and diseases, and more.  A final course agenda will be available prior to the training.
