This month’s UNRI webcast will feature Tree Boards and Commissions, with Dr. William Elmendorf of Penn State University. For the past 100 years, cities, boroughs, incorporated towns, and townships have been empowered by state administrative codes to establish shade tree commissions and boards. These volunteer commissions typically concentrate on the management and maintenance of public street and park trees. They can include appointed volunteers, elected officials, or others. In general, municipalities enacting these commissions may appoint members to the body and may empower the body as decision making or as advisory to the elected municipal legislature. This webcast will discuss the use and role of Tree Boards and Commissions in urban forestry and management.
