Support for urban forest programming is in jeopardy. The NC Urban Forest Council is able to bring you things such as the Carolina Canopy Workshop Series, the Tree Board Webinar Series, the Annual Great NC Tree Conference, and the Legacy Tree Fund because of the support of the Urban & Community Forestry Program within the NC Forest Service.
Without their support, through their grant program and through their techinical support, we would not be able to offer as many opportunites in NC. The U&CF Program is funded through the Farm Bill and is in risk of being eliminated from the federal budget.
Please visit our urban forestry legislative advocacy page to find out what you can do to promote the importance of urban & community forestry in North Carolina. Your voice can make a difference!
