Annual conference discusses “How Trees Grow Communities”
The Arkansas Urban Forestry Council (AUFC) is holding its 21st Annual Conference June 25-26, 2012, at the Lake Point Conference Center at 61 Lake Point Lane in Russellville.
The two-day conference will include presentations on a variety of subjects, including the advantages of planting trees in neighborhoods, green infrastructure planning, Arkansas’ historic trees and more. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to participate in ten educational sessions to gain a greater understanding of how trees can help their communities through increased property values and a cleaner, safer environment.
The conference will also include an awards luncheon and outdoor demonstrations of tree climbing and Air-Spade®. The public is invited and professionals involved in tree programs can receive continuing education credits.
Registration fee is $120 for AUFC members and $140 for non-members until June 18. The fee increases by $25 after that date. Register online at www.arkansastrees.org/events.
