Log in to learn about the latest status of municipal forestry in the United States and trends over time. During the past forty years, much has been learned about municipal forestry operations in the United States. We will present our latest research findings on volunteers in municipal forestry, tree risk programs, tree diversity issues, budgets, effects of emerald ash borer on budgets, and more. We will also discuss an upcoming project to develop a municipal forestry dashboard that will allow an interactive evaluation of municipal forestry programs. Learn with us as you grab bite over lunch.
