Does Your Plan Include Gardening?

Spring is just around the corner and for those of you who plan to include gardening in your agritourism venture, the LSU AgCenter provides up to the date information 24/7.  Our horticulture experts can answer your questions in our parish offices or online.

For those interested in taking classes. Two courses are planned for the spring. The first course, Introduction to Arboriculture, will be held Feb. 18-22. It is an intensive review course that will help new and experienced tree care workers prepare for taking the Louisiana Arborist Exam and the International Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborist Exam, according to Hallie Dozier, LSU AgCenter forestry specialist.
The second  is offered in two intensive, hands-on, two-day parts, Dozier said. The first, Technical Tree Felling & Cutting and Climbing, will be held Feb. 25-26. The second part, Fall Protection and Work Positioning, will be held Feb. 27-28.
