Chiricahua Trees Course

October 3-7, 2022


The Southwestern Research Station

Portal Arizona

Sponsored by the University of Arizona and The University of California in conjunction with the American Museum of Natural History.


The trees course is an introduction to the ecology, field biology and utilization of desert adapted trees in landscapes.  The goal of the course is to give attendees knowledge about how trees survive in nature and what lessons this teaches for cultivation of trees in urban and suburban landscapes.  For those holding certified arborist credentials we offer 30 CEU’s during this five day course.

Structure of the course

The course involves both field observation and classroom teaching.  Each day will includes lectures and field trips to unique habitats within the sky islands of South Easter Arizona.  The course will focus on tree adaptations to diverse environments, landforms, water resources, and relationships of trees to other organisms.  Each evening after dinner will be keynote seminars by one of the faculty including night field trips to see wildlife that utilize trees at night.
