LISLE, Ill. – The Morton Arboretum will host the second Urban Tree Conference, “Managing Urban Forests in a Changing Climate,” Nov. 18-19, 2014 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Geared toward municipal foresters, arborists, landscape architects, and others who own, care for or plan for trees, this conference will examine the changes underway in our climate and the significant impact they have on the trees that comprise the urban and suburban forest.


The two-day conference will feature a variety of programs and speakers from organizations including the USDA Forest Service, all aimed at equipping professionals with information and tools for effective planning and decision-making in urban forest management. Attendees will gain insight into the range of risks our changing climate poses for trees, how tree placement can lessen the impact of stormwater increases, and other environmental concerns.
 

The conference will also explore resources and strategies available to plan a future healthy urban forest and foster discussion of other practical issues, such as adapting to escalation in pests and diseases due to climate change.
Registration will be available online beginning July 16 here or by contacting the Arboretum Registrar's Office at registrar-ed@mortonarb.org or 630-719-2468.
