The Tree Wardens' Association of Connecticut is proud to announce the launch of the Municipal Tree Care Academy. This comprehensive hands-on certificate training program will give you all the skills you need to care for and maintain public and private trees. Starting with the basics of tree biology, academy attendees will learn to select nursery stock, plant properly, prune for mature structure, and maintain the tree for it's lifetime in order to ensure that all newly planted trees are long-lasting members of the urban forest community. Our instructors can also train employees in tree work safety, tree identification, and common insects and diseases. Be sure to check out the brochure for all topics.

The best part? We bring the training to you! No need to waste travel time and lost productivity. 

Have a large tree planting project or young trees that need to be pruned? We can plant and prune while training your employees. 

All courses are instructed by Licensed Connecticut Arborists. 

Municipal Tree Care Academy attendees will graduate from the individual topics with a broader skill set and understanding of the importance of properly maintaining trees.

Read on for more information or contact the office for a pricing brochure. All trainings can be customized to your needs.
*Pricing and agendas may fluctuate from that in the brochure.
