One of the challenges for those working with trees is trying to answer questions like 'What is wrong with my tree?'. There are some steps that we all should go through when trying to diagnose the problem and this workshop will work through those steps. The day is spent both inside and out looking at samples that have been brought in and walking through the trees on campus to see what can be identified.
