If you are like me and can't do the drive to Cullman, the Tuscaloosa County Extension will be broadcasting this event as a free webinar on the same day at the same times. A live webinar. Just go to the Tuscaloosa County Courthouse Annex at 2513 7th Street. Contact [email protected] with questions.
Seminar Goals include:
- Review techniques and tools for hazard tree ID
- Review common defects that lead to tree failure
- Identify tree defects in the field
- Review how to properly prune trees
- Review storm restoration techniques
- Review tree selection, planting and care
This is a super opportunity for mature homeschooled kids to learn more about how they can assist the community, since not every broken tree is in our own backyard.
