  • 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!

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

  • Bradford pears. What can't go wrong with them! I don't have a good answer for you but I have many times see them appear to be about to die and then they bounce right back and look normal again. I'd advise just waiting to see what it looks like after spring bud break.
  •   Check out the Center for City Park Excellence... excellent resource and idea generator for urban parks
