Beyond The Basics: Planning For Urban Trees

September 7th – 8th, 2023

Cary, NC

ISA, NCLCLB, & SAF Credits Available

Registration Information

At this year’s conference we will explore how arborists, urban foresters, and landscape architects and planners can create and manage our green spaces for trees in a changing climate. 

The indoor session on September 7th will feature concurrent sessions, all occurring between the morning and afternoon general sessions. One tract will focus on arboriculture and the other tract will focus on urban planning. As always, the day will start with a Member’s Breakfast, break at noon for an Awards Luncheon, and end with a silent auction.

The outdoor session on September 8th will be a field tour of Cary’s unique approach to tree conservation. Town of Cary staff will share with us their favorite locations, showcasing how they protect Cary’s tree canopy along city streets, within neighborhoods, and among utility buildings.
