A Conference To Help Improve Canada’s Urban Forests

The Canadian Urban Forest Conference (CUFC) brings together leading experts from across the country to discuss and learn about innovative strategies, policies, technologies, research, and best management practices in urban forestry.

Alternating between cities every two years, the CUFC is a forum for professionals, municipalities and community groups to share their experiences and novel approaches to the stewardship of Canada’s urban forests. The CUFC is coordinated by the host city with guidance and support from Tree Canada.
