Consulting Arborists Network – Epicormics & Restoration Pruning
February 21, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Consulting arborists network invite all VTIO members to this discussion of tree restoration and epicormic management.
Key note speaker Graeme Hughes from Melbourne Polytechnic will open the conversation with a case study of trees on campus. Then we will have a round table discussion where we can share our ideas and experiences in this field.
Andrew McKernan from Melbourne Tree Care will present on the use of biological agents such as bacteria and fungi to aid in tree recovery. Approaches used in sustainable agriculture can be adopted by arborists to address root damage and pestilence.
Please bring along pictures or samples that may be of interest to other members.
A light supper will be provided.
