ACTrees Day Celebrated in North Carolina

Washington DC based ACTrees is a great partner to TreesNC!

ACTrees has supported our youth environmental service ( YES!) program, community tree plantings  - and most recently our East Side Grove project.

Naturally, we were honored to be invited to address the Plenary Panel at the 2014 ACTrees National Day on Nov. 4th in Charlotte, NC.

Before an audience of 200 urban tree leaders, TreesNC president Owen George kicked off the Engaging Diverse Communities panel with a description of our work in Asheboro's East Side neighborhood.

Our panel team included some of the nation's leading urban tree programs -  Baltimore's Parks and People Foundation, Los Angeles' Tree People, and Philadelphia's UC Green.

To the entire ACTrees team  - we thank you for including TreesNC in your national celebration!
