ACTrees is committed to advocating for the vital benefits of trees in our communities. Through our national network of member and partner organizations, ACTrees works to advance a unified voice for urban forestry in national and local legislation and policy. As part of this effort, ACTrees organizes an annual Policy Summit to reach out to elected officials, government agencies, and policy leaders.
This year, ACTrees members from across the country met with elected officials and federal agency leaders on May 7–8 at the 2014 ACTrees Policy Summit in Washington, DC. Advocates urged strong funding for the USDA Forest Service’s Urban & Community Forestry Program and urban forestry research, shared their local community tree projects, and built stronger partnerships with federal agencies.
