About the Conference

The Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Program hosts a one-day conference held 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.

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

Diane Cook and Len Jenshel, photographers and authors of Wise Trees, are this year's keynote speakers.

Session topics include:

  • Preparing your Community for EAB
  • Managing Urban & Community Forests
  • Planning for Forests & Wildlife
  • Trees for Managed Landscapes
  • Tree Identification
  • Technical Tree Climbing & Rigging
  • And more!
