      Municipal/Business Forest Invasive Species Prevention Workshop

      Join the Mid-Michigan CISMA for its first Forest Invasive Species Prevention Workshop for Municpalities and Commerical Businesses!  The free workshop will be held Monday, April 8th at the Delta Township Library in Lansing, MI from 5:15-7:30 pm.  This workshop is geared for municipal/governmental and commercial business staff- city planners, parks and recreation, public works, forestry departments, commercial landscapers, arborists, foresters, and more!  The Mid-Michigan CISMA is pleased to host Julie Stachecki, President of the Arboriculture Society of Michigan. Julie is an ISA Certified Arborist and Tree Risk Assessment Qualified (TRAQ) & Michigan Oak Wilt Qualified. Julie will speak with us about the current status, misconceptions, prevention, and treatment of oak wilt, an invasive disease affecting Michigan oak trees. Oak wilt is an important issue for local communities and we can all play a part in its prevention. You won't want to miss the opportunity to learn from her expertise!  This workshop has been approved for 2 MDARD seminar credits in Comm. CORE or Categories 2, 3A, or 3B, as well as certification credits from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and 2 Category 1 CFEs from the Society of American Foresters (SAF).
