Bartlett Tree Experts Host Annual Workshop at Penn State Mont Alto
Forest Technology instructors Craig Houghton and Beth Brantley assisted in some lectures and outside demonstrations during Bartlett Tree Experts’ annual “Plant Health Care Workshop” at Penn State Mont Alto on March 11. More than 70 property managers, city managers and landscapers from the surrounding area attended the workshop, according to Brad R. Evans, Bartlett Tree Experts arborist representative and local manager.
During the day-long workshop, participants learned about recent tree-related diseases and pest management as well as treatment options and proper arborist care.
“The Penn State Mont Alto Arboretum serves as a good environment for an outside classroom,” said Evans, who is also a member of the Penn State Mont Alto Arboretum Council.
