The National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, in partnership with the Olmsted Center for Landscape Preservation, will conduct a three-day workshop about historic tree management, November 30-December 2, 2010. This training is for landscape managers, maintenance staff, volunteers, and others who care for, or are interested in historic trees.
