February 20, 2014 NOVA Urban Forestry Roundtable

1st Quarterly NOVA Urban Forestry Roundtable of 2014 - Thursday February 20, 2014

"Disaster Planning, Recovery and Response . . Urban Forestry Intersections" 

Trees are a valuable community asset, but when weather strikes they can become a problem.  Critical initial response time can be saved by having a plan and knowing how to respond.  It is equally important to deal with residual risk after the emergency subsides, identiying and pruing or removing trees that are damaged, but still stand.  Are you prepared? 

Please register no later than February 18.  There is no charge for Roundtable attendance.  Lunch is brown bag or you may purchase lunch for $10.00 as you register online.  If you are bringing your own lunch, please registerand put in comment field "will bring own lunch."
