Happy International Day of Forests 2017!

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed March 21every year the International Day of Forests (IDF) in 2012. The Day celebrates and raises global awareness of the importance of all types of forests through local, national and international efforts to organize activities involving forests and trees. CIEDM has supported and participated in this international campaign for several years. For IDF 2017, we are celebrating the event by not only undertaking a drip irrigation system repositioning project to entice root expansions for all fruit trees in the orchard garden at Arcadia EcoHome, but also taking following training to expand our knowledge in urban forest development & management:

1. On March 21, the day of IDF, attend Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) University webinar and learn more about the threats by the invasive pest EAB on our urban ash forests
2. On March 29 attend the webinar on Flexible Funding for the Urban Tree Canopy offered by USEPA’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF).
3. On March 31 attend California Urban Forests Council’s webinar on Planning a Competitive Urban Forestry GHG Project to learn how to design a great tree planting project.
