Oak Wilt Qualification Course
August 19 - August 20
The Invasive Species Centre will be hosting an Oak Wilt Qualification Course in partnership with the International Society of Arboriculture, Ontario Chapter. This qualification course was developed by the Arboriculture Society of Michigan (ASM), a Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture for Ontario arborists and land managers. This is an advanced-level course for ISA Certified Arborists, certified foresters, and individuals with a 4-year degree from an accredited college or university. If you are not a certified arborist or forester, please contact [email protected] with a transcript prior to registering to confirm eligibility.
Participants will receive special training on the identification and management of oak wilt, including a field tour into Michigan to observe infected sites. Participants will also receive the “ASM Oak Wilt Qualified – Ontario” designation upon successful completion of the Michigan Oak Wilt Identification and Management Qualification Course.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided during the in-class portion and boxed lunches will be provided for the field tour. Please indicate on the registration page if you have any dietary restrictions. Bring any necessary personal protective equipment as well as a valid passport or NEXUS card that will allow entry into the United States for the field tour.
