Tree lovers unite in Urban Forest Council

By Mark Martin

Do you love trees and the benefits they provide? Have you ever wondered if there are other people in North Carolina that are working to protect, promote, educate and inform citizens about tree issues?

The North Carolina Urban Forest Council (NCUFC) is a non-profit organization that works on all these issues and more. The board members and volunteers at NCUFC are some of the best, consisting of leaders from municipalities, small businesses, large corporations, universities and the state of North Carolina.

The city of Salisbury has been a member of the NCUFC for over 22 years. It has given us the opportunity to provide the most up-to-date training and education to our city staff and citizens here in Salisbury. The NCUFC sponsors many exciting programs that help people plant and learn about trees and connect them with the experts in their area.

This year the NCUFC will put on the 11th annual Great NC Tree Conference. This two-day event will be taught both in the classroom and in the field by some of the country’s best educators.

Here are some other programs the NCUFC has — Legacy Tree Fund, NC Grove, NC Urban Forestry Awards, NC Urban Wood Group, tree board webinars and Green Infrastructure Alliance.

If I have sparked an interest and you want to learn more about the NCUFC, please take a look at their website: www.ncufc.org.
