Event Information

Each year, the Urban and Community Forestry Society (UCFS), formerly SMA, hosts a conference and tradeshow. The UCFS is a membership-based organization that works to build the confidence, competence, and camaraderie of all professionals who manage trees and forests to create and sustain more livable communities. If you are a professional who makes a daily tree stewardship decision for a community of any size, we welcome you at this Society and this conference. Our membership includes city foresters, commercial firms, nonprofits, tree board members, tree wardens, and allied professionals who actively practice or support some facet of municipal or community-based forestry.

This exciting conference brings together members and non-members alike to network, learn, and knowledge share. Presentations from experts in the field, city tours, networking receptions, and more make this a can't miss event! The conference is held in conjunction with the Partners in Community Forestry Conference. We hope to see you in Chicago!

This conference offers:

  • Real world case studies of urban and community forestry in action
  • Knowledge sharing and peer-to-peer learning
  • A chance to be with your tree people who understand the challenges and triumphs of being an urban or community forester
