Arboriculture - Intermediate Outline

"This course provides graduates with more in-depth knowledge than Arboriculture I by focussing on such topics as transplanting techniques, environmental control, environmental tolerance, and strengthening techniques, as well as felling and stump removal. The course culminates with a lesson on establishing and designing a tree plantation geared at the serious professional." - Gavin Cole B.Sc., Psych.Cert., Cert.Garden Design, MACA,

This course develops your ability to manage trees beyond Arboriculture I, in order to minimize potential long term tree problems. Learn about better tree selection, strengthening and improving health of existing trees, and techniques used to better remove trees and stumps that must be removed.
