Why become a member?
The North Carolina Urban Forest Council is a participatory organization with many growth and leadership opportunities. Individuals and organizations can serve on committees, attend seminars and workshops, or share ideas with an elite green-industry community. Members not only take the profession seriously, but also are committed to each other and to advocating for increased investment in urban forestry. Members shape the direction of the Council and the green industry profession.
Being a member of the North Carolina Urban Forest Council gives you access to the following:
- Networking opportunities - Tap into a network of hundreds of green industry experts across the state to share on-the-job experiences, request information on urban forestry issues, discuss local and national topics of concern, and discover new job possibilities.
