Subject

Forestry and arboriculture

The degree programme covers a wide range of current arboriculture issues, including tree production and establishment in an urban environment, epidemic outbreaks of disease affecting trees, international developments in urban forestry, detection of decay in trees and the use of biotechnology in developing disease detection technologies and stress resistant cultivars. Issues of environmental sustainability are emphasised throughout the course. An integral and exciting part of this course is the opportunity for students to conduct their own piece of original research in an area of arboriculture that interests them. This not only allows a real area of expertise to be developed but gives Myerscough students further recognition as they progress to employment.
