Clark, and Nelda P. Matheny. 1999.Arboriculture: Integrated Management of Landscape Trees, Shrubs, and Vines.4th Edition. Prentice Hall, Englewood Cliffs, NJ.Readings As Assigned.Course Description:Establishment and care of individual trees in a non-forest context.Program Learning Outcomes: FOR 304 is not a BSF core requirement course. FOR304 is a required course for forestry students enrolled in the general forestry major withan emphasis in urban forestry.The course shall meet the following BSF forestry learning outcomes:1. Demonstrate understanding and competency of forest ecology and biology;2. Demonstrate understanding and competency in the measurement of forestresources;3. Demonstrate understanding and competency in managing forest resources;4. Demonstrate understanding and competency of forest resource policy, economics,and administration.5. Demonstrate understanding and competency in oral and written communicationskills.Items #1 - #4 above are required by the Society of American Foresters, the program’saccrediting agency.B.S.

Student Learning Outcomes: Basic tree morphology and physiology will be reviewed(PLO1). Concepts and techniques in the diagnosis of individual trees exposed to abioticand/or biotic stressors will be presented and practiced (PLO2). Methods to protectexisting trees, and maintain and improve tree vigor will be discussed (PLO3).Knowledge of arboriculture as the foundation for developing and implementing soundurban forest management programs will be emphasized throughout the course (PLO4).Professional ethics as it relates to the practice of arboriculture will be discussed (PLO4).Oral and written laboratory reports will be assigned to improve communication skills(PLO5).Course Goal: Students will be introduced to planting methods, cultural practices andprotection techniques for individual trees in an urban environment. Knowledge of thescience of arboriculture is necessary to be effective in managing individual trees andforests in an urban setting. Students that successfully complete FOR 304 will have thebackground to understand concepts presented in FOR 404: Urban Forestry.Course Topics - Reading Assignments from Required Text in BoldIntroduction to Arboriculture (Chapter 1)Basic Tree Structure and Function (Chapter 2)Water Management (Chapter 13)Tree and Environment Relationships (Chapters 3, 4)Preserving Existing Trees (Chapter 11)-ANSI A300 (Part 5)-2005 ManagementPreventative Maintenance and Repair (Chapter 17)-ANSI A300 (Part 3)-2000 Support Systems-ANSI A300 (Part 4)-2002 Lightening Protection SystemsTree Selection (Chapter 6)-ANSI Z60.1-2004 American Standards for Nursery StockTree Planting (Chapter 8 and 9)- ANSI A300 (Part 6)-2005 TransplantingNutrient Management (Chapter 12)-ANSI A300 (Part 2)-1998 FertilizationIntroduction to the "ANSI Z133.1-2000 Pruning, Repairing, Maintaining, and RemovingTrees and Cutting Brush-Safety Requirements"Pruning (Chapter 14)-ANSI A300 (Part 1)-2001 PruningDiagnosing Plant Problems (Chapter 18, 19)General Course PoliciesCourse Attendance: Attendance will be taken for lecture periods. Students will beallowed two unexcused absences from lecture during the semester. Subsequentunexcused absences will result in a ten (10) point reduction in the final point total foreach occurrence. Students missing lecture, should obtain the notes from a classmate. Iwill not provide handouts to students missing lecture due to an unexcused absence. If the2

absence is excused, (health, family emergency, participation in a University sponsoredevent), I will clarify any questions regarding the lecture notes and provide any handoutsduring scheduled office hours.Attendance will be taken before each laboratory. If absent from a laboratory, I will notaccept the assignment and points totaling a half-letter grade will be deducted from thestudent's final point total for each occurrence. There are no make-up laboratories.Students missing a laboratory because of an excused absence are still responsible forcompleting scheduled assignments. See me as soon as possible, if you missed alaboratory due to an excused absence.Students are responsible for providing documentation for an excused absence. See theSFASU Policy Manual, Class Attendance and Excused Absence, Policy A-10 on SFASUweb-site for more information.( attendance excused abs.asp)Other Troublesome Classroom Behavior: Listed below are two, common behavioralissues that can disrupt the learning environment. Be aware of the policy for eachbehavior listed below.1. Cell phones (including text messaging): The use of a cell phone, including textmessaging, will not be tolerated in the classroom or during a field laboratory. Make surethat cell phones are turned-off and stowed before entering the classroom. If a cell phonerings during a lecture or laboratory, or I observe the use of text messaging, I will deductten (10) points from the offending student's total point score for each occurrence.2. Excessive tardiness/leaving early: Lecture and laboratory will begin promptly at theappointed time. Repeated tardiness will not be tolerated. A student can be late to classtwice without penalty. A ten (10) point reduction in the total point score will be appliedfor each additional occurrence. Tardiness to laboratory will usually result in the studentmissing the laboratory. See above for the laboratory attendance policy.Students that have to leave during lecture/laboratory for a legitimate reason must makeprior arrangements. If a student decides to leave during a lecture/laboratory forunexcused reasons, do not return during that particular period. A ten (10) point reductionin a student's final point total will be applied for each occurrence.Other Policies: Cheating and Plagiarism - The severest penalty (an F for the course) willbe assigned to any student caught cheating or plagiarizing on an assignment. Cheatingand Plagiarism are defined in the SFASU Policy Manual (Academic Integrity A-9.1; integrity.asp).Cheating includes:1. Using unauthorized materials2. Falsification or invention of any information3. Helping someone else cheat or plagiarize3

Plagiarism is presenting the words of ideas of another person as if they were your own.Plagiarism includes:1. Submitting an assignment as your work, but, it is at least partly the work of another2. Submitting a work that has been purchased or otherwise obtained from an Internetsource or another source3. Using the words or ideas of an author in your paper without giving proper creditCheating and Plagiarism are defined in the SFASU Policy Manual (Academic IntegrityA-9.1; integrity.asp).Student Disability - Students seeking special accommodations for learning or physicaldisability must first contact the Office of Disabled Student Services (ext. 3004).Accommodation requests must be discussed with the instructor.Assignments and Grades: The final grade for the course will be determined byaveraging the grades from 3, 25-point laboratory reports, 2, 100-point exams, and a finalexam of 150 points. A total of 425 points are available in the course. Exams will involvematerial from both lecture and laboratory. A student's course grade will be based on thepercentage calculated by dividing points earned by total points available. As a generalpolicy, there will be no make-up exams. However, students missing an exam because ofa university-recognized excused absence should make arrangements to make-up theexam.Texas Tree Conference: The International Society of Arboriculture of Texas sponsors ameeting each fall called the “Texas Tree Conference.” This conference is attended byover 300 practicing arborists, ROW management specialists and urban forest managerseach year. The meeting this year will be held on October 5-7, 2011 in Waco, TX. Iwould like for us to attend the Thursday, October 6 session. We would leave SFA at 5:00am and return by 9:00 pm. During breaks and the awards luncheon, students will havethe opportunity to meet potential employers for internships or permanent positions. Iwould like to consider this trip as “mandatory” and will substitute two laboratory periodsfor your all-day time commitment (See laboratory schedule).4
