All tree enthusiasts are invited to attend this year’s ReLeaf Conference at Hofstra University. This year’s theme is “Keeping Trees in Mind, Planning for a Better Tomorrow.” Trees can fix and mitigate issues ranging from climate change to stormwater control, and including trees in all stages of community planning helps maximize their benefits. We’ll hear from speakers on how to plant trees properly, things to consider for finding the right tree for the right place, things to consider when writing tree ordnances, and more. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with leading urban forestry specialists and professionals.
New York ReLeaf is a state program promoting sound management and care of our state’s community trees. It is a cooperative effort coordinated by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the NYS Urban Forestry Council (NYSUFC), with major funding supplied through the USDA Forest Service. The goal of New York ReLeaf is to create partnerships among tree professionals, citizen volunteers, educators, government, and the private sector. The annual ReLeaf State Conference brings together interested parties from across the state’s nine regions to share experiences, ideas, and new information.
Continuing education credits may be available for DEC applicators, Society of American Foresters (SAF), International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), Certified Nursery & Landscape Professional (CNLP), and Landscape Architect (LA). Information regarding which credits have been approved for applicable presentations will be posted on the website as this information become available.
