R.J. Laverne

R.J. Laverne, PhD, a faculty member at Michigan Tech, will lead this hour-long walking tour of the university’s arboreal assets. At least 40 different species of trees shading Tech’s grounds, from white pine to ginkgo to Kentucky coffee tree. This tour will focus on those on the main campus and is free and open to the public.

Laverne received his BS in Forestry from Michigan Tech and is the manager of education and training for the Davey Tree Expert Company in Kent, Ohio. He teaches Urban Forestry in MTU’s College of Forest Resources and Environmental Science.  He is a board certified master arborist and a registered consulting arborist.  When he’s not teaching about trees, he’s probably trying to make something out of wood.

Registration is required, and attendance is limited, so if you plan to attend, register here at your earliest convenience.
