    On July 22, 2014 at 12:00 p.m. MDT Utah State University Forestry Extension and Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands partnered to present the 19th Learn at Lunch Webinar Series presented by:

    Paul Shwartz, Arborist, Michigan State University

    Protecting trees during construction, especially sidewalk projects, requires commitment and cooperation from all staff and contract partners. Urban foresters and arborist constantly fight for tree consideration and protection but often have limited resources or influence.  Over his 20+ year's experience at Michigan State, Paul Shwartz, has developed a protocol that works.  With a combination of creative solutions, strong specifications and lots of communication, Michigan State's tree population thrives as the campus infrastructure continues to improve.  During this webinar Paul will share the secrets to his success! 

    These Learn at Lunch Webinars are a joint effort of Utah State University Extension Forestry and the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire, & State Lands.
