    Advanced Tree Biology: Macroscopic Tree Anatomy


    Professional tree health care providers and tree managers should always use the proper terms and definitions for tree components, parts, and growth patterns.  Understanding proper scientific names for anatomical components is critical in identifying and describing tree parts and problems.  This workshop is an advanced technical look at tree anatomy and morphology at the macroscopic levels (<15X) in above ground tree structures.  Concentration will be on identifying and naming common tree growth forms, and visible tree tissues and their organization.  Coverage includes twig, branch, stem, and periderm anatomy, along with identifying features visible with the naked eye or under low magnification.  Can you tell one part from another?  A certificate of completion will be provided.
