We are set to open our Laureate Tree School at Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden, from the Imbizo Training Centre on 1 April 2017.
The initial courses will be of a training nature with a strong practical bias:-
- Care and maintenance of established trees in landscapes
- Collection and storage of tree seeds
- Formative pruning
- Identification of invasive alien woody plants
- Managing tree hazards and risks
- Ornamental tree identification
- Other tree cultivation husbandry practices
- Propagation of trees
- Tree planting
- Tree relocation and transplanting
- Tree rigging
- Tree selection attendance
These would empower the trainee to be more independent and competent in the field.
