Advancing Arboriculture

PTCA's Annual Seminar & Field Day is two full days of education and training for both management and crew level employees.   Industry experts are featured each August bringing the latest research and information to San Diego's historic Balboa Park. 

The 35th Annual PTCA Seminar and Field Day, themed "Advancing Arboriculture," is set to take place at the Balboa Park Club on August 16th and 17th. This year's lineup of speakers includes industry experts such as Jim Downer, Kevin Eckert, Ron Matranga, Gordon Mann, Chris Shogren, Kurt Peacock, Rhonda Wood, Humberto Mojica, Michael Poffenberger, Javier Quiroz, Martin Morales, Erick Palacios and many others.

Attendees can expect to delve into a variety of topics such as botany for arborists, tree assessment after fires, tree law, pests, and A300 standards. The field day portion of the event will offer outdoor experiences to complement the seminar topics, with a full schedule tailored for field employees. The bilingual program will cover a range of essential skills including truck inspections, chainsaw operation, best management practices for tree planting, tree removal techniques, and safe crane utilization. Over 12 continuing education hours will be available to attendees to join us both days.   Don't miss this opportunity to enhance your knowledge and skills in the field of arboriculture.
