ISA Soils and Trees Workshops:
August 11, 2011 - Davis, California
August 17, 2011 - Spokane Washington
The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) is sponsoring two day-long workshops on soils and trees. On August 11, 2011, a workshop will be held in Davis, California, followed by another workshop being held August 17, 2011, in Spokane, Washington. These workshops are designed to introduce landscape architects to the ISA publication, Up by Roots: Healthy Trees and Soils for the Built Environment, which James Urban, FASLA, authored for the ISA. These workshops will be run by Mr. Urban and other experts in the field of urban soil and trees. The book, Up by Roots, was awarded an ASLA Honor Award in 2009 for communication. Mr. Urban is a nationally recognized expert on urban trees and soils.
These workshops will cover a wide range of topics from basic soil science and tree biology to solving the kinds of tree design problems that landscape architects face every day in their work. These workshops are specifically designed for Landscape Architects and will cover the technical soil and tree information needed to develop project requirements found in the ASLA Sustainable Sites Initiative. These programs will offer CEU credits through ISA and ASLA LA CES continuing education program. ISA will work with individual states for continuing education credits on a state by state basis.
These seminars are a self-sustaining event and will require no funding or assistance from your chapter except for your chapterâ€™s endorsement and your commitment to advertise the program. The goal is to reach as many landscape architects as possible in your chapter. Participants will fund the workshop though the tuition fee.
