Reveling in the Magnificence of Trees

Friday September 16, 2016 in Waynesboro Virginia

On behalf of Waynesboro Parks & Recreation, Trees Virginia, and the Virginia Department of Forestry, we are pleased to present the 21st annual Waynesboro Tree Workshop: Reveling in the Magnificence of Trees and ArborMaster Training. The workshop is divided into two tracks, ArborMaster and Lecture. The ArborMaster track teaches hands-on techniques and skills vital for tree climbers, groundsmen, and anyone in the production side of tree work. The lecture track is divided into two sessions of indoor lectures and outdoor demonstrations and is geared towards those working in municipalities, government agencies, and private industry. There is something for everyone at this workshop and regardless of track, you will be hearing from arboriculture and urban forestry experts.
