Accelerated Arboriculture

The Accelerated Arboriculture course is designed for students who already have a fairly secure knowledge of arboriculture and wish to take an expedited class in preparation for the state Arborist Licensing Exams.

Accelerated Arboriculture is taught by a series of guest speakers who have expertise in their field.  Each class will feature a different topic and corresponding guest speaker.  These instructors are regarded as professionals in their fields, hailing from UConn, the CT Agriculture Experiment Station, the Bartlett Tree Expert Company, and more.

We will announce exam dates/locations and distribute the course texts at the start of the first class session.
