Hey, Philadelphia-area readers! James Urban, FASLA will be presenting his “Up By Roots” seminar at the Morris Arboretum at the University of Pennsylvania on Wednesday, April 17th from 9am to 4pm.

The one-day seminar will address the principles of soil science and their use in facilitating the growth of healthy trees and developing water-efficient landscapes. Topics include:

  • Soil science and tree biology
  • Urban soils versus forest soils
  • Soil assessment methods and practical applications
  • Basic solutions to common urban soil problems

Landscape architects, site designers, and contractors all make decisions that impact soil, often without an adequate understanding of critical scientific principles. In this seminar, Jim will discuss fundamental soil principles and solutions to urban soil problems in a manner designed for people with little to no soils training using common language and a distillation of complex soil principles.

James Urban, FASLA is a landscape architect and member of the International Society of Arboriculture. He was more than 30 years of experience in the field of urban development.

This course carries 5.5 CEUs for ISA certified arborists and 6 CEUs for PA landscape architects. You can register here.
