April 7-9, 2008
Over the past 15 years, the Trees & Utilities National Conference has been an important educational event in the utility arboricultural industry. This year’s conference will continue that tradition by focusing on some of the most important issues facing the industry today. You’ll hear the benefits of utilities working in partnership with the communities they serve. You’ll hear about some new trends on the regulatory front. You’ll learn about some best practices being implemented by utility vegetation management programs.
On top of these timely issues, a broad agenda will showcase exemplary efforts in public education, public relations and communication, tree planting and care, and other vegetation management issues. The Trees & Utilities National conference is a mix of education, networking and collaboration as we search for new ideas, practices, and partnerships that can enhance the growth and maintenance of an abundant community forest while providing safe, reliable utility services.
