"Partnerships to Build Your Tree Canopy"

The 20th Annual New York ReLeaf Conference, "Partnerships to Build Your Tree Canopy," will be held July 19-21 at Canisius College in Buffalo, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced today.

New York's ReLeaf Conference fosters partnerships among tree professionals, citizen volunteers, educators, government and the private sector, offering a unique opportunity for attendees from all of the state's nine regions to share experiences, ideas and new information about the management and care of our state's community trees.

Arborists, tree care workers, tree board members, community volunteers, public and private sector foresters, landscape architects, horticulturists and government officials are all encouraged to attend to learn more about opportunities and partnerships within the tree community. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to learn from professionals from across the country and Canada and to tour local community forestry projects, a green housing development and a tree nursery.

Prior registration is required by July 10. For more information and to register for this conference, please visit the website at
