On March 4, NYSUFC President Andy Hillman and Executive Secretary Betty Shimo attended the Alliance for Community Trees (ACTrees) first-ever Urban Forest Council Steering Committee meeting. The other participating state councils were from NC, PA, WI, CO, and CA.
Hillman says, “The meeting affirmed for me that our Council is part of a larger urban forestry movement that could benefit from more cross-pollination and sharing of ideas.”
In that spirit, it seems fitting that as our own NYSUFC blog launches, we check out the blogs of other state urban forest councils. What are some of the most interesting and innovative things they are doing? Which ones do you already have bookmarked?
Georgia Urban Forest Council | Sustaining Georgia’s green legacy by helping communities grow healthy trees. The Georgia Urban Forest Council has a well-developed, easy to navigate website that has a new-ish blog that runs on the home page of the website. Also they have a Georgia ReLeaf “Donate” button right on the home page. Other nice touches: There is a tab that links to the American Grove blog, and a tab that goes to extensive pages on tree care.
