Tree Board Webinars
Move your Tree Board to the Next Level...
We began the Tree Board Webinar Series with the purpose of helping tree boards take the next step in their urban forestry program efforts. Since 2013 we have continued to offer web-based seminars on a variety of topics helping tree board members better understand tree care and board responsibility.
Through a series of webinars, we present ways that you and your tree board can function more efficiently and effectively within your community. Learning more about the political process, how to communicate your message, community forest management opportunities, and how to engage your volunteers will provide mechanisms for your board or commission to have more impact and better manage your urban trees and green space. All webinars are recorded and available for viewing at your convenience, so if you missed one, they are available at the bottom of this page.
Attending three or more webinars earns you a tree board education certificate and a resource guide which contains valuable information that will help your board well into the future. Stay engaged and take advantage of this networking opportunity to move your tree board to the next level.
