For those people that are International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), Certified Arborists and Municipal Specialists, and attending this conference, it has been approved for 8.25 CEU's (Continuing Education Units)...

M'san.. yes I will be attending. A few things I would like to know and perceptions I'd like to understand, and seems to be made possible, as the panel format is to stimulate opposing information exchanges and solutions. Some things still mystify me.    ::)
If anyone is attending, let me know, I look forward to seeing you there.....           edzard

Perhaps the best way to summarize the Conference is to say that it is 'pivotal'. Was uniquely fascinating and is pivotal.
This conference has undoubtedly changed the direction, attitudes and functions of Japanese gardens outside of Japan as numerous topics were covered that illustrate a new direction/departure from the Japanese gardens of Japan, and yet, echo them in many facets.
I would be writing for a week to describe the presentations and even the results are unmeasurable at the moment, as the point of the conference was to decide if there was a direction for gardens outside Japan, and what that direction is, what this offers in funding and preservation, presentation, history, education, technique of pruning and design, solutions for problems, ID of problems and so on... -- pivotal.

Does this describe it well? probably not. Hopefully as planned if the attendees will join this forum to discuss these issues, past, present and future, and take advantage of the strong resources that are available from and through the participants of this forum, there will, in conversations outline what occurred in the areas of needs and solutions with directions for the future (such as regional gatherings, National gatherings, educational dissemination.. and so on..... Difficult to put the long ranging impacts/influences into simple succinct descriptions...                 edzard (not to even begin to mention the Lifetime Achievement Award to Takeo Uesugi sensei and so on...)
