Tree Board Webinars

Move your Tree Board to the Next Level

NCUFC organized the first Tree Board Webinar in 2013 to help local tree boards move foward in their urban forestry program efforts.  That event quickly turned into a six year webinar series, totaling 25 learning events.  

Tree board members across the state relied on these web-based seminars to accumulate guidance for tree care techniques and board member responsibilities ... and so can you!  Whether you are new to the tree advocacy effort or are a veteran advocate needing a refresher course, sift through our library of Tree Board Webinar recordings.  You will learn the following:

  • how to navigate the political process
  • how to communicate your tree advoacy message
  • how to tackle forest management tasks
  • how to engage your volunteers 

Collectively, these webinars will help you and your tree board function more effectively so you can take your advocacy efforts to the next level.
