The Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Program is hosting a one-day conference on Thursday, May 4th, 2017 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. View detailed agenda.

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. Joe Murray, consulting arborist & educator, will be the keynote speaker.

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


The Vermont Arbor Day Conference costs $40, payable by check or credit card.
