“Discovering the genus Tilia and Quercus” is the two-day monographic course organized by the Agricultural School of the Monza Park for 12 and 13 October and dedicated to arborists, three climbers and professionals.
The course is divided into two days: the first of theoretical lessons in the classroom, the second of demonstration moments in the park of Monza.
During the first meeting, morphological, physiological and pathological peculiarities of the two botanical genera in question will be explained, with insights into the most frequent species in our territories and space will be given to practical issues such as pruning and visual evaluation of trees for the recognition of symptoms of occult defects and fungal diseases.
On the second day, a demonstration lesson in the field is scheduled in the park of Monza, where there are specimens of both lime and oak trees, in order to put into practice what has been taught. The root system of some trees will also be uncovered. Participants will be able to try their hand at the visual analysis of the specimens under study and will propose the related management plan. Examples of tree climbing pruning of the trees under study will follow under the direction of the teacher.
