Center for Tree Science Events

The Center for Tree Science routinely hosts a variety of focused meetings, training and scientific workshops, and occasional special presentations.  Please check here for upcoming events!

The Center for Tree Science also regularly hosts weekly one-hour “Tree Talks” on Mondays at 11:30, primarily between September until May.  While we take a short vacation from these talks during the busy summer months of research and training, occasionally a speaker just can’t wait.  We’ll announce those special talks here.  “Tree Talks” are typically held in the newly renovated Cudahy Auditorium behind the front desk in the Administration Building but please verify the location below as space availability changes.  The annual symposium for the Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program in mid-August is the highlight of the summer program.
