Since the summer term 2004 (exactly in Mid March 2004) I am working as a lecturer for tree security and tree-care at university of applied sciences in Weihenstephan. My seminar room is the department of forestry, but I also educate technical university students of landscaping and planing.
During the summer term we talk about "tree security" what means wood construction and destruction (especially certain wood-destructive funghi), defectsystoms, diagnostic equipment and the valuation of wood.
In the winter term it is all about practical tree-car (measures of tree protection on construction sites, securing, planting, root conservation, melioration site, problematic precipitation, professional pruning, etc...)
