Nominations for the 2018 Friends of Our Urban Forest Awards Program are being accepted (Deadline, December 28th) in the following categories: Outstanding Professional, Outstanding Tree Advocate or Tree Advocacy Group, Outstanding Project, Outstanding Urban Forestry Program and Lifetime Achievement Award. The awards will be presented to each winner at a local event held in their own community. This could be a city commission meeting, tree planting ceremony, or other special event. In this way, the “Friends of Our Urban Forest” award recipients will receive special recognition within their own communities – where it matters most. These presentations will be scheduled in late January and early February which may allow for some award presentations to be held in conjunction with Arbor Day celebrations.
