Now Live! WSU Urban & Community Tree Stewardship Online Certificate Course

Urban and community trees provide many benefits to the environment, to human health and well-being, and add economic value to our neighborhoods. The WSU Urban & Community Tree Stewardship online course provides education to WSU Master Gardeners, landscape professionals, and members of the public interested in proper tree care within their communities. This training is unique because it is designed to not only teach the fundamental principles of tree biology and plant health care, but to also give people the tools to become advocates for trees in their communities.

The course was developed by WSU Extension Experts, many with International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Arborist Certification. The peer reviewed curriculum is aligned with research-based best practices. Project funding was provided by the USDA Forest Service and administered through the State of Washington Department of Natural Resources Urban & Community Forestry Program.

The online training will empower WSU Master Gardeners, landscape professionals, and community members to become knowledgeable advocates for, and active stewards of trees in their communities. Earning the WSU Urban & Community Tree Stewardship Certification will provide credibility that can lead to opportunities to speak about the many benefits of trees, and provide guidance on, and application of, urban and community tree best management practices.

WSU Master Gardeners will earn 20 continuing education credits toward WSU Master Gardener recertification. Once certified in Urban & Community Tree Stewardship, WSU Master Gardeners who teach about Urban & Community Tree Stewardship should log their time under the category of Urban &
Community Tree Stewardship in the WSU Volunteer Database.
