Members of the PHS tree team, including blog favorite Casey Combs, are in Orlando attending the Partners in Community Forestry Conference (now through November 17). There, arborists, foresters, and other green-minded folks from across the globe are convening and connecting around the thing they love most—trees!
This conference of the Arbor Day Foundation brings together leaders across urban forestry’s many diverse groups and promotes best practices in urban forest management, sustainable partnership models, and innovation in programs and projects.
Yesterday Casey spoke to a group about all of PHS’s exciting tree-related endeavors, particularly Plant One Million (118,767 trees and counting!). He also discussed the wonderful PhillyTreeMap, which neatly and niftily displays the city’s growing tree canopy.
