The state of urban forestry is constantly changing. To help you with the new challenges, new innovations, and new faces, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Community and urban Forestry (IDNR CUF) program invites you to attend an Urban Forestry Symposium Thursday and Friday, September 12-13, 2019.

This fall meeting is an opportunity to reconnect and reengage with the broad network of urban forestry professionals and volunteers across the state of Indiana from municipal forester and consultants to tree board members and tree steward volunteers and those professionals who we would like to engage in a more meaningful way.

Symposium Goals:

  • Provide high quality education to partners and practitioners
  • Give partners the opportunity for professional development and networking
  • The first meeting of interested and invited members to participate in a reestablishing state urban forestry advisory body.
