    Rutgers University invites you to join us for this free online seminar on "The State of the Green Economy" led by renowned green industry consultant, Jim Huston. We recruited Jim to present this information specifically because so many landscape, tree, turf and irrigation companies are struggling with marketing, personnel, pricing and investment decisions. Jim will cover the following topics to equip you with current market numbers, sales forecasts and strategies for overcoming these challenging times:

    • The Big Picture: What's Really Happening?

    • Green Industry Trends by Market:
    o Installation: Commercial & Residential o Irrigation Service
    o Maintenance: Commercial & Residential o 2nd Home Market
    o Lawn Fertilization & Chemical Applications o Estate Gardening
    o Full Service Commercial Maintenance o Tree Service Work
    o Specialty Markets: Lighting, Holiday Decoration, Snow and Ice Removal

    • Maximizing your sales for the remainder of 2010

    • How successful contractors are adjusting to the economy

    As a management consultant to the green industry since 1987, Jim travels throughout the United States and Canada consulting with landscape, tree care and irrigation contractors. He has written four books, including “Preparing for and Responding to a Down Economy” and developed business software for the landscape and irrigation industry.

    Here's what your colleagues have been saying about Jim's teaching style and outcomes:

    "Jim did an awesome job! He is both informative and entertaining."

    "Jim's course was the best of its kind that I've ever taken."
