Tree School is an educational conference for arborists, foresters, forest landowners, and backyard gardeners on August 15 at WSU Spokane. The cost is $50 to register, but scholarships are available by contacting Erica-johnson@sccd.org. This year the theme is Wildfire: Yesterday and Today with keynote presentations by Jack Nisbet and Mary Verner. There will also be 20 different concurrent seminars so that each participant can attend 5 classes of their choosing like Backyard Blueberries, Common Bark Beetles in Eastern Washington, “Android” Forestry, Design Review, and Forest Weed Identification and Management. Several classes are available for continuing education credits for WA Pesticide licensing, International Society of Arboriculture, and Society of American Foresters.

 Trees are an important resource in Spokane County and adjacent counties, whether part of a forest or providing shade in a backyard. The Forestry Department of the Spokane Conservation District (SCD) applies an ecologically-balanced approach to managing, utilizing, and protecting the forest and wildlife resources. While the SCD specializes in assisting the non-industrial private forest landowner with their forestry issues, we also provide assistance to the public and local governments in rural and urban areas.
