This class features a combination of lectures, discussions, research, and field trips designed for those who desire a basic understanding of tree care--both ornamental and fruit-bearing. Students will learn theoretical and practical concepts of tree selection; establishment, management, and preservation of trees in a landscape environment; and professional standards in the proper selection, planting, pruning, and training of trees.
