Houston Urban Tree Conference Coming to HCC Katy Campus

November 08 2023

Learn the latest management practices for tree care in an urban landscape at the Houston Urban Tree Conference on Nov. 17 in Katy. Open to the public, the conference will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Houston Community College - Katy Campus, located at 22910 Colonial Parkway in Katy. 

The program is presented by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, Houston Community College and the Houston Area Urban Forestry Council. The Houston Area Urban Forestry Council (HAUFC) was formed in 1986 with the mission of providing a forum where the different interests involved in urban forestry could come together to develop programs for an enhanced urban forest in the greater Houston area.

"Our urban landscape trees took a hard beating with this summer's heat," said Boone Holladay, Fort Bend County Extension Agent. "Compound that with the recent freeze damage that many of these trees endured over the past two winters and we are starting to see many trees throughout our region dying off. Implementing the practices of proper tree care are more crucial than ever to ensure our landscape tree canopy stays strong and healthy for years to come."

The conference will cover four topics: "Mulching-Healthy Soils and Water Conservation," "Tools to Manage Trees in Times of Stress," "Irrigation Technologies for Tree Management" and "The Significant Value of Mature Trees: How to Preserve This Infrastructure Asset."

Registration is $50 and attendees can register at bit.ly/46QH4cJ. CEUs will be available from Texas International Society of Arboriculture and the Texas Nursery and Landscape Association. For more information, email paul.winski@ag.tamu.edu.
