The Rochester Arborist Workshop (RAW) is series of workshops held in Rochester, Minnesota. RAW is dedicated to promoting great arboriculture across the tri-state region of southeast Minnesota, northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin.

When attending RAW workshops, you’re not only getting innovative information but you’re creating opportunities for future caretakers of urban trees and supporting urban forestry. Funds raised go towards scholarships for arboriculture students.
