In any event, there is still plenty of time to keep the promotional bus for the Full Circle Urban Forest conference rolling. Our next press release – coming soon – will focus on the conference speakers and topics.

Welcome to the more than 50 new subscribers who signed up to receive the monthly Illinois Urban Wood Update at last week’s highly successful Illinois Arborist Association Conference & Tradeshow in Tinley Park, IL.

Allow me to conclude by sending a huge WUT shout out to our friends at the IAA for being gracious hosts and great allies for the urban wood cause!
