The North Carolina Urban Forest Council consists of individuals, citizen groups, nonprofit organizations, businesses and agencies from around the state that share an interest in community and urban forestry. We are many different voices protecting trees where we live, work, and play.
NCUFC is a nonprofit organization which helps communities strengthen the efforts of local groups by serving as a resource, a forum for networking and discussion, and an advocate of the urban forest. The Council seeks to encourage and support these communities in their urban forest management efforts.
What We Do
NCUFC hosts conferences and workshops across the state for training and networking opportunities in the tree care industry. We also co-sponsor conferences with others in the green industry like the Green Industry Council, NC Nursery and Landscape Association, NC Cooperative Extension and the NC Forest Service. Our members promote the benefits of urban forest management and healthy community forests to NC citizens. We educate elected officials and decision-makers about important issues affecting the future of trees in North Carolina’s communities.
