The Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Program is hosting a one day conference on Thursday, May 2, 2019 in honor of Arbor Day and all of the hardworking professionals and stewards that care for our community trees.

The Vermont Arbor Day Conference is designed for the stewards of Vermont's urban trees and community forests and will provide an opportunity to enhance technical skills, engage in urban forestry hot topics, and network. The conference is open to all and intended to support tree care professionals, municipal staff, tree wardens, tree board members, citizens, and all tree enthusiasts.

Four simultaneous tracks will be offered and geared toward separate audiences: professionals (municipal leaders), arborists, forest health interest, and volunteers.

The conference will also celebrate Vermont's Arbor Day with a proclamation and recognition of Vermont Tree Stewards Awards and Tree CityTree Line, and Tree Campus designations.

The keynote speaker is author, mountaineer, adventurer and athlete Jan Reynolds, author of the book The Glass Summit: One Woman’s Epic Journey Breaking Through.

Join us as we learn about, celebrate, and recognize the people who care for Vermont's urban trees and community forests!


Registration is $40 before April 18th; $55 on April 19th and after.

Payable by check or credit card.
