Introducing Arboriculture to High School Students

The healthy future of tree care will depend on engaging the next generation and sparking an interest in the profession of arboriculture. Here at PTS, we always welcome an opportunity to help spread the word, and jumped on the chance to speak to students at Dallas' Emmett J. Conrad High School. 

The Vickery Meadow site sits on 40 acres and its 46 core classes cover the performing arts, visual arts, media, science and instructional technology. Approximately 36 different languages and 50 dialects are spoken by the attending students. 

Micah Pace Conrad Hs Career Day2

Urban Forestry Specialist & Registered Consulting Arborist, Micah Pace, led a program describing the benefits of trees and the expanding opportunities of a professional tree care career. Micah spent a recent morning visiting a variety of classrooms at the school. 

Micah spoke about the educational and training requirements needed to pursue the path of a professional arborist, detailing the differences and commonalities of professional arboriculture and urban forestry. Possibly of most interest to the young crowd, Micah discussed some of the latest technology that is shaping the industry, such as tree inventory software and geographical information and system-based analysis tools. 

Upon thanking his host and audience at Conrad, Principal Temesghen Asmerom presented Micah with a certificate of appreciation, commemorating the newly inaugurated partnership with the school.
