Forestry Workshop

Annual Community Forestry Workshop


The 26th Annual Urban and Community Forestry Workshop will be held Friday, October 5, 2018
John Street Quarters, 28 John Street, Westminster, MD 21157
Presented by Bartlett Tree Experts, the Westminster Tree Commission, and the City of Westminster.

The annual workshop was established with the goal of improving the skills of arborists, foresters, gardeners, and landscapers from government agencies. To this end, the one day event brings in industry experts from around the country to provide professional training and education. State Foresters and private arborists and foresters are welcomed as well.

All eligible attendees receive Maryland Pesticide Applicator--Full Recertification and Continuing Education Credits from ISA (International Society of Arborists) and the American Society of Foresters. Offering these re-certification and continuing education credits is an ongoing service which recognizes the professional achievements of the attendees.
