Arborists and CTPA members are invited to a demonstration of Stormwise, to be held on Tuesday, November 15, from 1 – 4 in the afternoon. The demonstration will be held in Durham.
What is Stormwise? Stormwise is an innovative approach to managing roadside trees and forests involving techniques drawn from arboriculture and forestry, in order to make those trees and forests more windfirm and safe during storm events. The effort is primarily being led by researchers at the CT Agricultural Experiment Station and at UConn. Stormwise has drawn support from participants as diverse as Eversource and the CT Forest and Park Association.
There is no fee to attend the demonstration but pre-registration is required.
3.0 ceu’s will be offered for arborists and forest pest supervisors, and for tree wardens. Foresters and forest product harvesters will be eligible for 1.0 ceu.
