There are a lot of benefits to trees in urban landscapes. They increase property value, reduce crime, provide shade and reduce energy costs. With so many benefits, it makes you wonder why we don't have more urban forests that we would all benefit from. It's just one of the topics that will be discussed at the 2013 Partners in Community Forestry National Conference.
Join @CoronaTools and our guest host, the Arbor Day Foundation, @ArborDay for a great Q&A discussion on the upcoming conference to be held in Pittsburgh, PA, November 6-7, 2103. The live chat begins 9/10/13 at 11AM PST via Twitter, where we come together with industry experts and fellow tree tweeps each week to discuss all things related to trees and tree care, since 2010!
