Protecting and Preserving Trees During Construction

Date: November 30, 2021
Location: Morris Arboretum, Philadelphia, PA, UNITED STATES
Organizer: Jan McFarlan
Sponsor: Morris Arboretum
Description: On-location Class

Successful tree preservation during construction assures that a project’s goals are achieved without jeopardizing the health and lifespan of protected trees. Since there must be a collaborative process by decision-makers for this to occur, people from all disciplines involved with the construction process will benefit from this class. We will assist you in determining which trees to preserve, how to designate adequate tree protection zones based on the tree’s structural and biological needs, how to specify and install protective fencing, and how construction processes such as cut/fill, trenching, and soil compaction affect both existing and proposed trees. Tree physiology and biology will be explored in this class. Preservation costs and tree protection specifications will be discussed, and tree protection myths will be presented and dispelled.

Please bring your own lunch. There are also local lunch options for take-out.

This course carries 6 CEUs for ISA certified arborists (S=2, P=2, M=2) and 6 LA CES credits for landscape architects.
