IAA and DNR CUF have worked hard to keep costs low for professionals, municipal staff, and volunteer tree board members to attend one or all days of the conference. The CUF program strongly encourages Tree City USA communities to send representatives from your municipality staff and/or tree board to the conference whenever possible to keep on top of new research, best management practices, funding opportunities, and general updates as they relate to tree care and urban forest management.
