CE: More Trees, Please! Tree Care Workshop Omaha

Are you a fan of all things trees? The Nebraska Forest Service will be holding a tree care workshop in Omaha on Friday, March 29th covering a wide range of topics presented by our expert staff PLUS nursery professionals, arborists, and other knowledgeable Nebraska tree professionals!

Here's what we'll cover:

• The Value of Trees: Why We Care (or should care):
Most people like trees and yet canopy continues to decline in many of our communities. This session will remind us how important trees are while summarizing some of the challenges trees face in the community forest.

• Green Industry & Wood Utilization Perspectives:
Nursery, arborist, and wood utilization professionals will cover some of the rewards and challenges they face in providing trees, managing them and utilizing those that have died.

• Tree Health (or lack thereof):
A myriad of tree health concerns will be summarized including emerging diseases and insect pests and the growing concern of herbicide damage.

• Some of Our Favorite Trees:
Over 200 species of trees grow in Nebraska and yet less than 20 species dominate our planted forests. A few tree huggers will highlight some of their favorite trees with the goal of improving tree diversity.

• Nebraska’s Champion Tree Program:
Big trees naturally catch our attention. This presentation will cover some of the big trees in Nebraska and explain how Nebraska’s champion tree program works.

• Optional Outdoor Activity:
Come outside (weather permitting) to see how a potential tree champion is measured in Lincoln.

Registration ends March 26th. Lunch provided with registration fee of $25.

***This event will be eligible for NAA and ISA CEU’s***
