Were you involved in Earth Day or Urban Forestry 1970-1993?

NANCY WOLF SEEKS INFORMATION ABOUT URBAN FORESTRY ACTIVITY AROUND THE STATE

Nancy Wolf is writing a short history of urban forestry in New York State from the earliest days of the late 19th century through today’s successful program.

Archival materials have not been systematically collected, unfortunately, but she is in touch with many who have been active in the program and they are pleased to share memories and any information they have.

She would like anyone to let her know information, particularly the following:

1.  Were there any “tree groups” or environmental organizations that celebrated the original Earth Day in 1970?

2.  Did any “tree groups” or environmental groups work with DEC in the early days of urban forestry from 1978 through 1991?  She would like details about this period, particularly. The Urban Forestry Coordinators during this period were Carl Wiedemann and Peter Innes.

3.  What “tree groups” are there now that are doing local urban forestry work, either on their own or in cooperation with local and state agencies?

4.  She would like details of the planning groups that were created by the expansion of New York ReLeaf in the early 1990’s. Many of the materials of that time have disappeared.

If you have memories or other information, please write to Nancy at jlnwolfinc@aol.com or call her at 718-834-4589.

Thanks!
