Content Detail

The Chicago Region Trees Initiative has developed a two-day, hands-on, training event for non-forestry professionals who work with trees. Not sure whether you fall into this category? Do you maintain streets, utilities, or infrastructure around trees? Have you ever had to plant or prune trees, but you’ve never been trained on best forestry management practices? Do you have trouble answering your clients’ questions about tree management?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you could benefit from participation in CRTI’s Urban Forestry Basic Training. Our expert-led sessions will include important forestry topics such as safety, tree selection, planting and pruning, the importance of roots and bark, providing proper tree care, and avoiding tree damage during construction. The second optional day is focused on chainsaw basics-safety, care, and best management practices for felling trees.
