    New Arboriculture Degree Program At Georgia

    The University of Georgia and the Warnell School have approved a new degree program entitled Community Forestry & Arboriculture to start this Fall (2018). The demographics of the State of Georgia and the nation demand more tree-literate graduates for utility, municipal, and commercial tree health care and urban forest management professions. This degree program will generate graduates who work with trees, sites and communities where trees are valuable green infrastructures. Classes were designed by a team of distinguished faculty and senior working professionals from utility, municipal and commercial sectors of the tree and site management professions.

    This program will consist of a series of five new classes, plus a professional internship period. Classes include: community forest ecology, tree biology, and tree structure; urban soils and site constraints; technical arboriculture and tree health care; urban and community forest management; and, a community forestry and arboriculture field school. Courses can lead to both a Bachelors of Science undergraduate degree and a non-thesis Masters of Natural Resources graduate degree. Emphasis will be on classroom education, service learning through doing, and field trip activities.

    With a rapidly urbanizing state such as Georgia covered with valuable community forests and trees, graduates are needed to provide sustainable care and management. The state of Georgia will serve as a working laboratory for this degree program. This new offering will bring a strong arboricultural foundation to students across the state, region and nation. Students are now being accepted. For further information visit the UGA Warnell School of Forestry & Natural Resources website.
