N. C. Urban Forestry Conference
The Great NC Tree Conference: Down to Earth
|Thursday, September 22nd - Friday, September 23rd 2016|
|Fairfield Inn & Suites Charlotte Uptown, 201 South McDowell St., Charlotte, NC|
It is with great excitement that we are announcing our 9th annual North Carolina Urban Forestry Conference.
This year our focus is on below ground issues with urban trees and our agenda is filled with nationally known researchers and speakers that will cover everything you need to know about tree roots and urban soils. We are also bringing back our Field Day on Friday, where you can see many of the topics covered on Thursday being demonstrated in practice.
Dr. Susan Day, from Virginia Tech, will be presenting on ‘compacted urban soil syndrome’ and her new research on soil rehabilitation. Dr. Day′s research focuses on root-soil interactions in urban systems and their role in the sustainability of urban ecosystems. Her work with the Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES®) since its inception shaped the soils standards now institutionalized by the US Green Building Council and adopted as a sustainability standard by the U.S. federal government executive branch.
We hope you can join us for this year′s conference. Registration deadline: Sept. 16th.
