Trees Matter Symposium

2018 Trees Matter Symposium
Wednesday, November 14 | 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Silver Spring Civic Center, Silver Spring, MD

Montgomery Parks and Casey Trees, Washington D.C., present the seventh annual Trees Matter SymposiumPresentations will focus on the health and welfare of trees in our increasingly developed landscapes. Learn from some of the country’s leading experts about innovative efforts to plant, protect and preserve trees in urban and suburban settings.

Trees provide many benefits: they cleanse and cool our air, stabilize our soils, provide wildlife habitat and beautify our urban and suburban areas. We encourage all arborists, landscape industry and environmental/green industry professionals, engineers, designers, housing developers and interested citizens to take advantage of this opportunity to learn new techniques and concepts on what can be done to ensure the survival of trees in our built environment.

Regular Registration is still available for $95 through November 13th by clicking here!
