The Urban Forestry Department at NDSU-Bottineau, in Bottineau, ND will
sponsor a workshop for people in the tree care field on May 23 and 24 in
Bottineau. The workshop will deal with basic tree climbing skills and
safety, utilizing ropes and saddles. Ascending, descending and moving
within the tree will be emphasized, however, some of the newer techniques
and equipment will also be demonstrated.
The Instructors are Bob Underwood, Urban Forestry instructor at NDSU-B
and Dr. John Ball of South Dakota State University. The program, plus 2
nights lodging in the dormitories and 6 meals, will cost $100. If you
have your own equipment, please bring it. We have several sets available
for those who are new to the field.
For a brochure or to register, call 1-800-543-6866 or e-mail me.
Hope to see you there.
