Cli­mate change is impact­ing trees and forests around the globe. Conifer trees are con­sid­ered a sen­si­tive species, and we must act to under­stand the impacts and pre­pare so that conifers can thrive in the future. Conifer trees pro­vide year-round ben­e­fits, includ­ing clean­ing the air, block­ing wind, buffer­ing noise, and pro­vid­ing wildlife habitat.

Region­al experts will come togeth­er to share the state of conifers in our region, cur­rent and future chal­lenges for the species, species selec­tion, and adap­ta­tion strategies.

The sym­po­sium will help to inform a plan for Alleghe­ny Coun­ty and SWPA — a larg­er effort made pos­si­ble through the gen­er­ous sup­port of the Richard King Mel­lon Foundation.

Who should attend? Tree Plant­i­ng orga­ni­za­tions, tree nurs­eries and gar­den cen­ters, tree care com­pa­nies, arborists, stu­dents and edu­ca­tors, and tree enthu­si­asts. Reg­is­tra­tion includes a light break­fast, lunch, and recep­tion refreshments.
