2011 Urban Forest Symposium

March 8th, 2011 by Tech Librarian, Tracy Mehlin

Arboretum Drive by E. WeltyTrees and the Urban Infrastructure

Plant Amnesty and the University of Washington Botanic Gardens are reprising their highly successful Urban Forestry Symposium, an all day event at the Center for Urban Horticulture. The past two symposiums have focused on the value and preservation of trees; this year’s event will delve into the nitty gritty of how can trees and urban infrastructure co-exist. The event will bring together highly-regarded “tree people” from a variety of fields that affect urban trees, including ecologists, arborists, landscape architects, and utility planners. The symposium promises to be highly informative, with sessions covering topics ranging from foundational values to technical solutions and political strategies. Inspirational keynote speaker Chris Maser has been called “Gandhi of the forest”. He is a research ecologist and courageous writer who rethinks the future beyond simple slogans – using hard science and the wisdom of the ages he can and will show us how the urban forest can be designed to effectively serve the citizens of the city. Additional presentations and panels promise to be lively.
