Explore careers in urban forestry
Between January and July 2023, we were thrilled to have Emma Howrilla intern with us as she completed here Bachelor's studies in Science, Techonlogy and Society at NC State. For her internship, Emma blogged about her exploration of urban forestry careers. Entitled In a Nutshell, the blog features summaries of Emma's interviews with different types of arborists and urban foresters across the State of North Carolina.
