Are you feeling burnout? You know you want to make your city's forestry program one of the best, but not enough staff and too many demands are holding you back. Maybe you've been dreaming of taking on an exciting project, but just can see how to make it happen with an already heavy load. If so, you're not alone. Join us to hear from Cambridge, Massachusetts City Arborist and Tree Warden, David Lefcourt, as he details how he and his team have grown their urban forestry program to one that is seen as a model. Cambridge was experiencing high demands from the city and constituents with not enough resources, but a few breaks turned their program around. In this webinar, you'll learn:

  1. How declining tree canopy triggered a change for the Cambridge urban forestry program.
  2. How new urban forestry positions were created.
  3. The development and implementation of the Urban Forestry Master Plan that led to a renewed forestry program.
