Trees are integral components of the urban landscape. They add value to our property, clean our air, add interest to our architecture, and even attract wildlife to our urban surroundings. Trees are often considered inanimate objects when, in fact, they are living, breathing and growing entities requiring care and maintenance to maintain their health and vigor. Join us as experts explore the importance of our urban forests, as well as ways we can help to nurture and care for urban trees.
