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 hosts Alabama Cooperative Extension System and Utah State University Forestry Extension 

Future Webinars

Registration will open approximately one month before the program date.

Soil Assessment for Urban Trees

Tuesday, January 14, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. Mountain

Dr. Bryant C. Scharenbroch, University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point and The Morton Arboretum

The goal of this webinar is to provide an overview of soil management for urban trees. Specific emphasis will be given to soil assessment. In this webinar Dr. Scharenbroch will introduce soil quality, cover how soil quality can be assessed, and discuss how soil quality assessment may be used for urban tree management. This webinar will include findings from research that has been funded by TREE fund. Dr. Scharenbroch will also include examples of how this information may be applied to real world situations for the arborist and urban forester.

Bryant has a Ph.D. in Soil Science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, a M.S. in Plant Science from University of Idaho, and B.S. degrees from University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point in Urban Forestry and Forest Management. Bryant’s research interests are pedology and soil quality. Bryant has published over fifty peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters. He has presented over two hundred times at industry and scientific conferences. Bryant has served as a Chair of the Urban and Anthropogenic Soils Division of the Soil Science Society of America and as Associate Editor for Arboriculture and Urban Forestry.
