PTCA General Meeting
February 7, 2016 | 6:30 PM
Location: Giovanni’s Restaurant, San Diego, CA
Join us for this special meeting, ‘Cherry Trees in San Diego’!
San Diego is home to numerous transplanted Japanese Flowering Cherry Trees, which adorn several Port District parks and The Japanese Friendship Garden in Balboa Park.We will hear a variety of special anecdotes from both Dan Simpson and Woody Brickley.
We have also invited Dr. Bruce Allison, from Madison, WI, to give a short presentation on his new invention: Tree Check. The Tree Check Sonic Wave Tree Decay Detector is designed for arborists and urban foresters as a low cost, simple to use, reliable field tool to detect the likely presence of significant decay, cavities, or cracks in standing trees. Used properly it can “see inside the tree”, revealing areas of concealed severe deterioration that, undiscovered, could result in tree structural failure or resultant property damage or personal injury. You can find information on this product on his website at allisontree.com.
The cost for this meeting is $20, and it will begin at 6:30 PM. We hope to see you there!
