Integrated Pest Management Symposium

Plans for the annual IPM Symposium have changed for 2020. Due to COVID-19 and restrictions on large-group meetings, we regret that we will be unable to offer IPM onsite at the Arboretum as we have in the previous nine years. Reporting requirements for online learning are prohibitive for us at this time to offer continuing education training for pesticide, greenhouse, nursery or landscape professionals. We look forward to bringing together all our green industry colleagues again in the future for professional development programs and gatherings at The North Carolina Arboretum or online. 

We are excited to offer a new online series for arborists and other arboriculture professionals that will meet ISA certification requirements. Also new this year is a series of classes focused on the home landscape for encouraging informed dialogue with contractors and designers as well as managing sustainable solutions for pest management and other site challenges.  

Registration opens Wednesday, August 12, for IPM 2020 – Arboriculture.
