Is your New York community engaging in or interested in learning more about urban forestry education or planning? Are you connected with the New York State Urban Forestry Council?
The council is a volunteer group, organized formally in 1999, to advise and assist the NYS Department of Conservation (DEC) in executing its Urban and Community Forestry policies. Get connected with them through their TAKING ROOT blog and monthly online newsletter which has featured reports on NYC Clones and Replants Historic Trees and Cornell Urban Hort Institute: Interesting Research Continues Apace. If there are urban forestry related efforts in your community you want to feature contact editor Michelle Sutton (firstname.lastname@example.org).
