TREE Fund Webinars

TREE Fund webinars bring you the latest in tree research, directly from the scientists themselves.

TREE Fund’s one-hour webinars are free and offer 1.0 CEU (only for live broadcast) from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), the Society of American Foresters (SAF), the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) and sometimes the Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System (LACES). See webinar descriptions for specifics. Space is limited and pre-registration is highly recommended; in doing so, you’ll receive a reminder email the day before the broadcast.

Many thanks to our webinar host Alabama Cooperative Extension System.

Planning for the Next Three Letter Urban Tree Canopy Changer: Lessons Learned with DED, EAB, ETC.

Tuesday, April 20, 2021, at 12 p.m. Central

Richard Hauer, PhD, University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point

All aboard a TREE Fund train for trip ride back to what we have learned this past century with some important urban tree canopy game changers. Our first stop is a lesson in biology and an interdisciplinary economic journey using lessons learned from DED and EAB. See how science has led to reliable predictors with a planned stop at preventing tree loss and the currency of canopy. The future journey continues to see how the TREE Fund supports tree changing research and practical results you can use and avoid getting derailed by ETC.

This webinar is co-sponsored by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System
