If Hurricane Sandy and its recent winter cousin, Nemo, taught New Jersey anything, it was that preparing for the worst is not an option, but a necessity in an era of extreme weather events. And learning what to do after disaster strikes is time well spent.
Months after Hurricane Sandy pounded New Jersey, many people are just starting to deal with the clean-up and rebuilding of their flooded homes and businesses. The health hazards associated with water-damaged buildings are numerous, ranging from the obvious – mold and electrical concerns – to the less well known – asbestos contamination and dangers of microbial agents and pathogenic viruses.

With the recent storms that have devastated the region and toppled trees too numerous to count, it is vital to have knowledgeable tree care professionals on the ground during and after clean-up to ensure public safety.

Later this month, Rutgers’ Office of Continuing Professional Education (OCPE) will bring the state’s top tree experts in to give hands-on training in tree care.

The first of several tree care courses, Hazardous Tree Identification, will be held in New Brunswick from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 27. 

The class is geared toward shade tree managers, arborists, landscape contractors, public parks/public works managers and other professionals who need to know how to assess a hazardous tree and when to call in the experts for removal.
