    Urban Forest Connections Webinar - US Forest Service Research & Development
  • Welcome to all Georgia Tree Lovers
  • In 2016, 875 Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) traps were distributed across the state by USDA – APHIS, GFC and USFS. At this time, EAB has been detected in four new counties: Bartow, Gilmer, Rabun and Union. This brings the total number of counties with Emerald Ash Borer present up to twenty-three. Please see the website below for the list of all counties with EAB present. With the addition of the 4 new counties this year, it is proposed that the quarantine move to a regional level quarantine. A map of the proposed quarantine area can be found on the following website: http://www.gatrees.org/forest-management/forest-health/eab/index.cfm . The Georgia Forestry Commission and Georgia Department of Agriculture are taking comments on these proposed changes to the quarantine area for a 30 day period. Written comments will be accepted until September 30, 2016 at 4:30 pm EST. New regulations will go into effect in October 2016. Comments can be submitted on-line at the website listed above or via U.S. mail (or other carrier) but must reach the GFC by the above date and time to be considered. Mailing / physical address is: Georgia Forestry Commission,Attn: Robert Farris, Director, 5645 Riggins Mill Road' Dry Branch, GA 31020.
  • 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.

  • The American Forest Foundation (AFF) announced that Georgia State Forester Robert Farris and the Georgia Forestry Commission are the 2014 recipients of the Sustained Excellence Award. The award is presented each year by AFF to a state forestry agency partner who has been a strong advocate and supporter of sustainably managed family forests and AFF programs, including The American Tree Farm System and Project Learning Tree. The American Tree Farm System provides private landowners with the tools and resources they need to be stewards of our country’s forests, while Project Learning Tree is designed to bring environmental education to the next generation. The Georgia Forestry Commission has also been instrumental in the creation of American Grove as part of their urban and community forestry program. Congratulations, Georgia may be at the bottom of many lists but it is at the top of community forestry!
