I really enjoyed the class last Wednesday. I knew very little about tree appraisal but now feel I could give a reasonable estimate of the value of a tree. Not only that, the material was presented in an easy to understand and entertaining format.

I still will defer on presenting something in a court setting.

Thanks for the feedback, and it was a pleasure having you there as a voice of experience.

We received some great response on the workshop content. I'm really looking forward to the Tree Conservation Workshop in Savannah in April!
