    SCHEDULE

    6:30am - 6:50am Registration

    6:50am - 7:00am Welcome and Introduction

    7:00am - 8:00am The Last Resort in IPM | Kirti Mathura

    It’s best to depend on The Top Three in landscape maintenance - Good Cultural Practices, and Biological along with Physical/Mechanical Control of problems. In some circumstances, Chemicals might be required to combine with these worthy approaches. We need to know when their use if valid, which to use, and how. Many organic pesticides are on the market. We’ll take a look at a few of these options as part of an IPM program.

    8:00am - 9:00am Recognizing, Responding to and Preventing Pesticide Exposure | Jennifer Weber

    Through this session, participants will receive information on how to recognize and prevent pesticide exposure situations and heat stress; the routes of exposure; the acute and chronic health effects of pesticide exposure; and how to find first aid information on labels and safety data sheets so they can properly respond to pesticide exposure situations at the worksite.

    9:00am - 9:15am Break

    9:15am - 10:15am Trees Talk with their Leaves | Rebecca Senior

    As practitioners of plant health care our “patients” cannot tell us where it hurts. But we can learn to listen to ways they do communicate, primarily through their leaves. We will look at trees leaves to help with one of the most important first questions when evaluating a tree in decline, is the cause abiotic or biotic. Misdiagnosis of the cause of tree decline can lead to misuse of chemicals or other mitigation procedures and like people the wrong treatment often leads to more harm to the patient, applicator, and environment.

    10:15am - 11:15am Pests and Problems of Landscape Trees – Under Study at UArizona Cooperative Extension| Michael Chamberland

    Cooperative Extension seeks to answer landscape and garden questions from the public and from the Horticulture Industry.  This talk will highlight several problems of landscape trees which are under study by Extension Agents and researchers at the University of Arizona.

    WE LOve our sponsors!!

    With our sponsors and community partners, we have planted over 800,000 trees in Arizona. Our volunteer community is strong and includes people from ALL walks of life and all ages. Supporting ACTC is a direct level of connection to people who include: home owners, students, small business owners, big business CEOs, green-industry professionals, teachers, cowboys and cowgirls, miners, technology professionals, municipal employees… you get the idea – we ARE Arizona and the people who volunteer with us ARE ALSO Arizona. Supporting ACTC, supports them as they do the work to care for trees in our our state-wide communities.

    We also provide the continuing education to hundreds of professional tree workers and arborists in Arizona. These people purchase and use millions of dollars in tree-care equipment, supplies and gear. Arizona tree professionals appreciate the support of organizations they go to for the supplies they need to care for trees. We invite our supplier partners to participate in supporting education events for tree-care professionals.
