"Trees and Equity, Community Collaboration, and Building the Future Workforce"
We're excited about our signature annual education event that features keynote talks, breakout sessions, tours and activities, our annual awards luncheon, and a trade show. American Forests’ Sarah Anderson, City of Savannah's Nick Deffley, and Greening Youth Foundation's Dr. Daniel Jones will open our conference with talks on getting diverse populations and students involved in tree care and urban forestry. Additional outstanding speakers are scheduled, with talks on canopy restoration, trees and moisture, trees and utilities, the ROI of healthy urban trees, creating parks in small towns, leveraging community engagement, and much more. Attendeees can choose from three afternoon tours: 1)a guided tour of King's Trail to view unique tree habitat, review tree ID, and learn about caring for this urban forest; 2) a guided bus tour of Stone Mountain Park's landmark trees with an optional walk through the Cox Nature Garden, and 3) for those wanting a more ambitious tour, a guided hike up Stone Mountain (ride the lift back down) to review unique forested sections and see Old Man Cedar and the Georgia Oaks. Learn what's going on around the state with our Excellence in Urban Forestry Awards Luncheon. A tree board roundtable is scheduled on November 6 as a pre-conference activity, and a networking reception is set for the evening of November 7. CEUs will be available.
