From David Sivyer, Urban and Community Forestry Program Manager for the Eastern Region of the U.S. Forest Service
Greetings Urban and Community Forestry Program Managers and friends,
Urban and community forests are a significant resource in North America and are likely to continue to increase in significance based upon demographic, economic, and environmental trends. As such, the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) is hosting a webinar on June 9, 2020 from 1:00-3:00 PM eastern time to explore the potential value of collaborating to develop a customized urban forest certification standard. Input received from participants during the webinar will inform a task work group that is being convened to assess the need for the standard.
I have the pleasure of representing the U.S. Forest Service on the SFI task work group. As it is important to receive input from as broad of stakeholder constituency as possible, I am asking for your assistance in forwarding this email through your respective State Urban Forestry Coordinator and peer professional networks. A link for the webinar registration is pasted below and is open to any interested party.
Thank you for you assistance!
