Tree Care for Gardeners and Homeowners
February 10, 2018 10:00 AM - 01:00 PM
Location: Education Center at Berkshire Botanical Garden

Whether you are a seasoned horticulturist or a dedicated home gardener, you are a steward of the landscape, and probably spend and great deal of time among the flowers, shrubs, and trees. This course is designed for those who might not necessarily be first to climb 100 feet up a Northern Red Oak or wrangle the chainsaw to fell a 36” dead American elm. The goal of this class is to empower gardeners to better understand the largest plants in the landscape. Learn the basics of tree biology and identification, the tree’s role in the ecosystem, proper selection, siting, planting considerations, pruning of young trees, fertilization, pest identification, and when to call in the certified arborist. Tom Ingersoll is a Massachusetts Certified Arborist, and also certified by the International Society of Arborists.

Tom Ingersoll is a Massachusetts Certified Arborist, and also certified by the International Society of Arborists. He owns Ingersoll Landcare located in Sheffield, MA and has worked in the landscape industry for the past 22 year. His passion is tree care and he serves both public and private clients in the tri-state region caring for their trees. Additionally he serves on boards of the Berkshire Botanical Garden and The Sheffield Tree Project.
