Preserving and Enhancing the Urban Forest

6:30 p.m., Wed., Sept. 23, 2009

Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center, 953 Jenifer at Brearly

The program will review Milwaukee’s successful program for urban forest protection during street construction projects and discuss Madison’s current procedures and urban forestry program with Madison’s City Engineering staff and City Forester. Historically, the street trees as shade trees have helped define the city’s historic landscape and should be protected.

Free and open to the public.
