Guided Arboriculture

Guided Arboriculture is designed for students seeking a directed, supportive approach to learning the material on the Arborist Licensing Exams. This course runs for longer than Accelerated Arboriculture, so students have more time to learn and practice the subject matter under the guidance of the instructor.

Guided Arboriculture is taught by David Tovar, owner and President of Woodland Tree Care in Greenwich, CT.  David has been a licensed and practicing arborist for twenty years.  He volunteers his time and expertise to teach this course.  The class is taught in English with Spanish language support available.

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