REGISTER NOW

This conference explores the changes underway in our climate and the effects they are likely to have on the trees that make up our urban and suburban forest.

Learn how you can help your urban forest and your community handle these shifts at The Morton Arboretum Urban Tree Conference, “Managing Urban Forests in a Changing Climate,” November 18–19, 2014, in Lisle, Illinois.

This two-day conference for tree professionals will focus on practical concerns for those who manage urban trees, such as how the changes in climate are expected to affect trees’ biology and growing conditions; shifts and increases in pests and diseases; and how communities can adapt. The right trees in the right places can help communities cope with increases in stormwater and other looming effects of climate change.

This conference is aimed at municipal foresters and other local officials; arborists; landscape contractors; landscape architects; and other professionals who own, care for, or plan for trees. It will take place at the beautiful 1,700-acre grounds of The Morton Arboretum, a world-renowned tree museum and center of research on tree science and tree care.
