Urban Forestry: A Southern Story

Expert presentations, panels, and hands-on demonstrations about assessing, protecting, and managing trees. Planners and managers, tree boards and nonprofits, foresters and field crews—everyone who grows and manages trees will get plenty of insights.

If you work with trees, you'll learn ways to do your job better:

  • Experts teach you to gauge the value and dangers of trees with our Tree Assessment and Risk Assessment workshops, plus best practices for using ropes in arboriculture
  • Extreme weather means big changes ahead: find out about drought effects and climate impacts on trees
  • The Tree Pests sessions take a look at everyday pests, invasive insects and diseases, and pest detectives
  • Learn more about trees including unusual trees you can grow, the American chestnut, the best trees for West Tennessee, and perfect understory plants
  • Take a tour of Jackson's trees including Cypress Grove, Liberty Garden, and the UT Research Center, plus a plant sale
