2022 Tree Essentials Workshops

Tree Essentials are a collection of educational workshops available to anyone that is interested. Whether you are a Tree Care Advisor, Master Gardener, Tree Inspector, or just a curious resident, you are welcome to attend. We cover an array of tree care topics and skills, with each date focusing on one specific topic. Tree Essentials workshops are taught by University of Minnesota faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students.

Pre-registration is limited to 25 people per session. Please only sign up for sessions you are committed to attending. Thank you!

If you are signing a group, each person in the group needs to be signed up separately (to ensure we don't exceed capacity limits.)

If an event is full, please email Sonja at [email protected] if you would like to be put on a waiting list.
