NC Urban Forest Council Sponsored Awards
Urban Forestry Awards Program
The Urban Forestry Awards Program administered by the NC Urban Forest Council. The goal of this program is to award communities for outstanding work in protecting and enhancing our community forests and raise community awareness of the importance of these projects. The awards are open to all individuals, organizations and communities whose work has set an example of excellence in urban and community forestry. The categories are:
- Outstanding Tree Board or Tree Commission
- Outstanding Individual
- Outstanding Project
- Outstanding Tree Care Professional
- Tree City USA of the Year
The deadline for submission is June 30 of each year. See the most recent announcement for the guidelines and submission forms.
Winners are selected by members of the NCUFC Executive Board and are judged for impact, quality, innovation and the degree to which the work serves as a worthy example for others to follow.
Award winners are honored at a special awards banquet during the Annual Urban Forestry Conference in September of each year.
