TREE FUN a series of 42 slides. Sign up by August 19th. Created by Alex L. Shigo for working best with children ages five to twelve years old. Ideas and simple projects to help introduce young minds to trees. Dr. Alex L. Shigo was a former chief scientist in a pioneering expedition into tree decay with the US Forest Service. In the research a conclusion was reached whereas ALL the current text books were incorrect Or the trees were wrong for not doing what the text books stated they were. He went with the trees eventually rewriting all the books on trees. He is now known by many as the €œFATHER OF MODERN ARBORICULTURE€. TREE FUN is a 1 hour session. You will have the option to download a pdf file with all 42 slides at end of class.
