First Quarterly Program and North Georgia State Arbor Day Event is February 7th in Duluth

Which tree ordinance is right for your community? What are the different types of tree ordinances? How have tree ordinances evolved? These questions and others will be answered at Georgia Urban Forest Council’s First Quarter program February 7th, 10 a.m to 2:30 p.m. at the Bunten Road Park Community Center in Duluth. Speakers include Joe Burgess of the Georgia Forestry Commission, Art Morris of New Urban Forestry, and representatives from communities who will discuss their types of tree ordinances and why they’ve implemented them. We’ll also learn why soil volume is so important to tree preservation. See the full agenda here.
