How Do Trees Work? The Biology and Growth of Woody Stemmed Plants
Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania
Mon, Apr 30, 2012, 9am - 4pm
Biology Professor and Consulting Arborist, Blue Ridge Community College
Neighborhood Coordinator, West Mt. Airy Street
This seminar brings together two great minds in arboriculture who will lead students to a deeper understanding of the basic structure and function of woody stemmed plants. We will learn how they grow, how they respond to injuries and environmental changes, and the mechanisms they use to defend against decay. We will discuss the hormones that bring about growth and change in a plant and we will explore ways to apply that knowledge to care for and extend the lives of both young and mature trees. This information will be valuable for arborists, landscape professionals, tree tenders and members of shade commissions, and gardeners curious to know more about how trees function. This course carries 5.5 CEUs for ISA certified arborists.
