Tree Canopy Series: Building Environmental Resilience

Plan to attend the 7 th annual conference

Trees are more important than ever.  This virtual conference focuses on preserving trees in our communities and examines important topics including tree equity, making the benefits of trees available to everyone.  We will learn how forests respond to climate change, which tree species will do best as the climate warms, and the importance of planting diverse species.  We will see how warmer temperatures change the geographic ranges of insect pests and what that means for preserving trees. 

Each session carries 1 CEU for International Society of Arboriculture certified arborists and costs $25. To register visit Morris Arboretum's website or call 215-247-5777, ext. 125.

Sponsored by the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania and the Haverford College Arboretum.
