Tree Canopy Conference

Tree Canopy Conference:
Green Infrastructure in the Urbanized Environment

Date and Location:

Friday, October 13, 2017
8:30AM - 5:00PM

Haverford College, Roberts Hall, Marshall Auditorium

These are challenging times for the communities responsible for maintaining a healthy tree canopy. There seems to be an alarming spread of blights, infestations, and extreme weather affecting our trees resulting in a diminishing tree canopy. Leafy, arching canopies of elm, ash, oak, and London plane trees over our streets and parks are declining. As park, municipal, and college campus managers we must adapt and learn from other professionals who will be sharing their successful tree canopy strategies with us during this day-long conference.
