Trees Matter Presents: Green Cities Summit
December 4, 2019 | 8:00AM – 5:00PM
Kellogg Conference Center
800 Florida Ave NE, Washington DC

Montgomery Parks and Casey Trees, Washington D.C., present the eighth annual conference — Trees Matter Presents: Green Cities Summit. Presentations will focus on the health and welfare of trees in our increasingly developed landscapes. Learn from some of the country’s leading experts about innovative efforts to plant, protect and preserve trees in urban and suburban settings.

Trees provide many benefits: they clean and cool our air, stabilize our soils, provide wildlife habitat and beautify our urban and suburban areas. We encourage all arborists, landscape industry and environmental/green industry professionals, engineers, designers, housing developers, and interested citizens to take advantage of this opportunity to learn new techniques and concepts on what can be done to ensure the survival of trees in our built environment

Think you have something to share?  We’re looking for engaging, innovative presentations from all realms of the urban environment!  Keep in mind your 20-minute presentation should fit within one of the breakout themes: Livable cities through Engaging Citizens, Urban Trees and Changing Landscapes: Planning for the Future, and ReTree: Expanding Canopies in Growing Cities. Here’s our call for presenters to submit your proposal.

The Green City Summit is made possible by generous financial and in-kind contributions from our sponsors. Join the ranks of the community-minded businesses working towards a collective mission by becoming a Sponsor today.  For more information please contact:
