With roughly 110 genera and one to six species per genera, the beauty and health of CU Boulder’s trees does not happen by accident. Caring for native and non-native species requires patience, knowledge and a dedicated team of arborists.
“There’s science and art, and you have to be thoughtful about what you’re doing,” said Vince Aquino, lead campus arborist. “The things you do to a tree in a couple minutes or an hour affect it for years or decades. You have to respect that and be cautious, and take your time about what you do and how you train others to do things.”
Thirty-eight teams have signed up to toss their ideas into the entrepreneurial ring the evening of Oct. 7, the first pitch event of the University of Colorado Boulder’s eighth annual New Venture Challenge (NVC).
