Trees Atlanta is Hosting the First Atlanta Canopy Conference
posted in Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum, Learn // 08/22/16

The Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum is an integral part of building the 22-mile loop as a greenway as well as a transportation corridor. Because the arboretum is an important part of contributing to Atlanta’s tree canopy, Trees Atlanta has been a close partner to the Atlanta BeltLine by not only building out the arboretum, but maintaining the landscape, educating the public, and providing tours of the Eastside Trail, as well.

We are excited to participate in Trees Atlanta’s first-ever Canopy Conference, to be held at the Kendeda Center on September 23. The Canopy Conference will focus on the preservation of Atlanta’s urban forest and feature sessions on landscape design, tree diversity, and best practices. Atlanta BeltLine, Inc.’s Senior Landscape Architect Kevin Burke will speak on a panel which will discuss the Past, Present, and Future of the Arboretum, including unique perspectives on the concept, implementation, and designs for new trail sections.

The partnership between Trees Atlanta and the Atlanta BeltLine is made all the more unique by the arboretum’s recent Level II Accreditation from ArbNet and collaborative efforts to secure a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation for restoration of Enota Park and Proctor Creek.

The Canopy Conference is ideal for community leaders, professionals, and residents interested in taking an active role to learn about and preserve Atlanta’s urban canopy. Full-day and half-day registrations are available, and the event will be preceded by the Tailgate for Trees fundraiser on September 22. Separate tickets for the tailgate are available here: https://treesatlanta.org/support-us/attend-a-special-event/tailgate-for-trees/
