Paul D. Ries, Manager of the Urban and Community Forestry Assistance Program for the Oregon Department of Forestry and Instructor and Director of the Graduate Certificate Urban Forestry program at Oregon State University, led with talks on “The Power of Collective Impact in Urban Forestry.” We also enjoy talks by horticulturist and author Erica Glasener (“The Impulse of Why: A Passion for Trees”), the University of Georgia’s Dr. Kim Coder (“Ecological Renovation”) and other noted experts. Included in the conference were breakout sessions on related topics, offsite tours, our Excellence in Urban Forestry awards luncheon and a Tree Board Roundtable with Tips for Success with Recruiting and Retaining Volunteers. This annual conference is always an enjoyable opportunity to see old friends and meet new ones who, like you, are concerned about maintaining Georgia’s green legacy and helping communities grow healthy trees and incorporate trees into their planning and growth.
