Iva, SC (September 24, 2004)- The South Carolina Urban and Community Forestry Council is a nonprofit organization created to provide a forum for the stewardship of South Carolina’s urban and community forests.

Their annual activities include:
* Annual Conference on Urban & Community Forestry Issues.
* Golden Acorn Awards for outstanding contributions in urban forestry.

* The Acorn, a quarterly newsletter for members and decision makers.
