Nature Talks: “Tree Canopy Health Assessment”
Speaker/Guide: Craig Vollmer

Location: Burgeson Nature Classroom

Join Craig Vollmer, certified arborist with Forecon Inc., and inspect trees to find internal defects and determine wood density and growth rates using a resistograph. With this high-resolution needle drill measurement device, an evaluation will be conducted on a few trees and then you will hear about the overall assessment and health of the tree canopy at the Institution. THIS is COOL!
