The trees on your property represent significant economic value and should be considered assets, not liabilities. Scott Kelley and Bill Trescott, Mt. Cuba Center's ISA Certified Arborists®, lead you on a behind-the- scenes tour of trees that make up the backbone of our collections and discuss how they assess tree risk and develop management plans to defend against potential hazards. Discover how you, your homeowner's association, or a civic organization can manage and preserve trees for future generations to enjoy. Class size is limited. Rain date for this class is Saturday, September 29, 2018.
