Trees are invaluable; they cleanse and cool our air, stabilize our soils, provide wildlife habitat and beautify our urban and suburban streets. Given what we know about the importance of trees, we must do all that we can to ensure their survival in our built environment. Attend the inaugural Trees Matters Conference to learn from some of the country's leading experts about innovative efforts to plant, protect and preserve trees in urban and suburban settings. This year's speakers include Paul Meyer of the Morris Arboretum and Eric 'T' Fleisher of Battery Park City Parks Conservancy.
