Tennessee Urban Tree Steward Workshop Targets Arborists

Arborists make a career of caring for trees in urban and suburban landscapes.

They work for companies commonly referred to as tree experts, tree services, tree care, arborists, tree specialists, and others.

The past ten years have brought more changes and innovations in the field of tree care than the previous 100 years.

As local governments promote city growth and people move downtown, traditional models of tree care based in a forest setting need to evolve, as trees previously managed as part of a forest stand are now managed as individual trees.


Professional arborists are often on top of research that will benefit communities.


It's no secret that public works directors have an incredible work load and wear many hats.


By hiring and working with certified arborists and tree workers, public works directors can often improve their credibility, save costs, keep up with the trend of certified arborist contract language and prevent tree care headaches.

Another federal agency with an interest in urban trees and energy conservation is the Department of Energy (DOE).


This department works closely with state energy agencies to assist utility companies and homeowners with grants and household tips that can reduce energy needs as well as beautify landscapes.

The DOE works through state energy offices to implement their goals and objectives.

            This course will consist of an overview of basic principles of tree biomechanics and how they relate to arboriculture and urban forestry applications.

            Participants can expect to learn these concepts and see how they can be applied to many aspects of arboriculture and urban forestry.


            The presentation will not be "math intensive" and biomechanical concepts will be introduced in the context of arboricultural practice.


            My background in natural resources and my interest in improving the walkability and livability of our communities has drawn me to urban forestry, and I have been fortunate to work on urban forest master plans, design guidelines, plant palettes and streetscape plans in both northern and southern California.


             I am excited about the opportunities to green our communities through urban forestry and urban agriculture, and feel that a healthy and vibrant urban forest is an important element of a healthy community.
