Due to continued safety concerns around COVID-19, the Shade Tree Short Course has decided to go virtual in 2021. While we won't be seeing you in person, we are still thrilled to offer an exciting program lineup with keynotes and concurrent sessions, exhibitors, and plenty of opportunities to network with your peers!
Discuss, debate and disseminate best practices on all things shade tree with fellow arborists at this two-day conference. The Minnesota Shade Tree Short Course has been ensuring tree health since 1963.
You and your entourage put on a spectacular conference. I am honored to have been a part of it.
