  • Last year, the National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council (Council) polled attendees at the Partners in Community Forestry Conference in Pittsburgh and learned that you'd like to have more input into Council activities. We listened to your feedback and have worked diligently this year to gather additional input from our Urban and Community Forestry (UCF) constituencies throughout the country. As we prepare to finalize the 2016 UCF Challenge Cost Share Grant Program, please take the time to complete this brief survey and help inform the categories for our next grant cycle! https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NUCFACpoll2014

    Please feel free to forward this link to anyone that you think might be interested in participating.

  • Any thoughts for shade- and salt-tolerant trees for a spot on State Street in Montpelier that gets very little sun?

  • Kate - Danielle, just joined and can't wait for the scenery to look like the picture above here in Winhall.  The grove is full of snow for the next couple of weeks anyway, here in Winhall.  Stay well, Best Dennis

  • The USDA Forest Service is working on a project to identify surviving American elms to test for tolerance to Dutch elm disease (DED). They are working to increase the genetic base of DED tolerant trees and the 1st step in this process is to identify possible survivor trees. They are looking for American elm trees at least 24" DBH in areas that have had DED and that have not been treated with fungicides. We are asking foresters and others involved in American elm work to watch for these elm trees, and if they see one, to please enter its GPS location and DBH on our website:


    They will compile the elms in a database, prioritize them for sampling, collect a few small branches, graft them at our lab, and test them for DED-tolerance.
