Arborist, John B. Ward and Sons, Inc.
Arborists use several strategies to preserve mature shade trees including the installation of various support cables, rods, guying systems, and lightning protection. This one-day course explores all aspects of these strategies as well as the best practices and standards for the industry. There will be field demonstrations of each technique and an opportunity to get hands-on practice. Alex is an ISA certified arborist with many years of experience in practical arboriculture and is an acknowledged expert in cable splicing and installation. Meet at the Horticulture Center.
