    The Georgia Tree Conference -  set for November 7 and 8 in Stone Mountain Park featuring keynote talks, breakout sessions, tours and activities, our annual awards luncheon, and an exciting trade show.    American Forests’ Sarah Anderson, City of Savannah's Nick Deffley, and Greening Youth Foundation's Dr. Daniel Jones will open our conference with talks on getting diverse populations and students involved in tree care and urban forestry.  We'll also hear talks from additional outstanding speakers on canopy restoration, community collaboration, trees and moisture, trees and utilities, the ROI of healthy urban trees, creating parks in small towns, and so much more.

    Attendees can choose one of three afternoon tours planned: 1) a guided tour of King's Trail to view unique tree habitat, review tree ID, and learn about caring for this urban forest; 2) a guided bus tour of Stone Mountain Park's landmark trees with an optional walk through the Cox Nature Garden, or 3) for those wanting a more ambitious tour, a guided hike up Stone Mountain (riding the lift back down) to review unique forested sections and see Old Man Cedar and the Georgia Oaks. Learn what's going on around the state with our Excellence in Urban Forestry Awards Luncheon.

    Tree Board Roundtable is scheduled on November 6 as a pre-conference activity, and a networking reception is set for the evening of November 7. CEUs will be available. Sponsorship and exhibit opportunities also available.  We hope to see you there!
