After completion of this program you will gain an in-depth understanding of industry standards for tree care and maintenance, proper planting and watering techniques, GIS mapping software, and career pathways in urban forestry. Not only is this a paid training opportunity, but the development of skills within this program will make participants a stronger applicant in the green workforce. Additionally, upon completion of Treejectory+ you will have access to industry professionals with recruitment potential, and will have already gained reputable references from our ISA Certified Arborists.
