Virtual Learning for Tree and Landscape Pros

Sep 21, 2020

Fall 2020 Tree and Turf Continuing Education

I just want to share some great virtual learning opportunities this fall, some beginning next week. Most of these events will be less expensive than their pre-COVID counterparts, but most have DPR and/or ISA CEUs available. There is always something more to learn- or at least be reminded of, so take advantage of as many of these as you can.
