Tree Management Plans: Site Evaluation and Tree Risk

Joins us in Sedona for a hands-on class covering the elements of creating a tree management plan.  We will cover the basics of a site evaluation and the ANSI 300 information on tree risk assessment (this is not a TRAQ program).

This is a full-day, 6 CEUs class designed to provide practical field experience.  The beautiful grounds of the Sedona Poco Diablo Resort will be part of our classroom in addition to the presentations in the main ballroom.

If you would like to book a room and stay at the resort, call 928-203-5923.
