National Arbor Day Foundation

About 500 government officials, non-profit staffers, utility company representatives, and academics will be in Pittsburgh from November 6th-7th to talk about the latest research in urban forestry.

Dan Lambe, the National Arbor Day Foundation’s Vice-president of programs, said the Partners in Community Forestry National Conference will focus on new programs and policies that strengthen community forests.

He said Pittsburgh is a great place to host the event because of the progress local institutions have made in urban forestry.
