This Northern Virginia Urban Forestry Roundtable on Thursday February 23, 2017 will feature successful case studies.  The agenda and registration information is now available.

This event was held at the Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc, 5300 Wellington Branch Drive, Gainesville, VA 20155.

Trees Virginia is now charging $10 registration (this fee covers a light continental breakfast, Paypal fees, materials, etc) for each attendee. 

The fee is $20 if you would like a boxed lunch, with only prepaid orders being reserved. 

You are always welcome to bring your lunch instead of purchasing.

When reviewing expenses, the Board realized subsidizing Roundtables results in less funding for its academic scholarships and getting the next generation trained is something we all know is important.
