Announcing Urban Arboriculture Program

Looking for new heights in your career?  The Landscape Horticulture Department at Merritt College is pleased to announce our new Urban Arboriculture Program.  Fall 2018 classes in this program are open now!  The following links have lots more enticing and useful information!

To promote the new program, several tree companies are participating in a promotional tree-climbing event on campus on Tuesday, May 1, from 12 to 2 p.m, in front of the Library.  There will be a bucket truck to demonstrate how arborists work on trees to maintain them, climbing ropes set up in a tree to demonstrate climbing techniques, and a spray truck used for tree health-care applications.  And, for interested and willing volunteers, there will be an opportunity to join a tree expert and see what it’s like.

For questions and more information, please contact Laura Forlin at or call (510) 436-2418.
