Urban Forestry

Sponsored by the Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture in cooperation with Texas Agri-Life Extension, Texas A&M University, this workshop will be the first of a series of annual events that cover topics in urban forest management and tree establishment and care.

The workshop will cost $40 which will include printed materials, a catered lunch and refreshments at breaks. Payment may be made by check written to the "Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture" on the day of the workshop or by registering online. If you need assistance call Tammy at 936-468-2680.

This one-day workshop will include presentations on defining urban forestry and arboriculture, tree identification, tree biology, urban soils and insects and diseases of East Texas trees. A 1.5 hour walking tour led by forestry faculty and campus arborists will allow workshop attendees to discuss urban forestry issues in an informal setting. Valuable information will be presented to homeowners, property managers, gardeners, city officials and natural resources professionals interested in the establishment, care, and management of trees in urban environments. Applications for SAF and ISA continuing education credits are being made for this workshop.
