DEC Round 15 Urban & Community Forestry Grant Recipients Announced

From President
Karen Emmerich 

Hello everyone, 
During recent snowstorms and forecasted high winds this week, I've been reminded to be grateful for the skillful utility arborists that keep our power on while preserving as much structural integrity of trees as possible. Thank you to forward-thinking utility arborists everywhere! We at the Council sincerely appreciate you. 

The next time I write you, we will at least be on the cusp on spring! I can already perceive the signs of spring, like the return of red-winged blackbirds, grackles, and brown-headed cowbirds to my area, and the increasing vocalizations of the cardinals, chickadees, and other resident songbirds.      

Keep warm, safe, and healthy,
