Growing Cities Sustainability: A Green Cities Summit Recap

From climate change adaptability tools, strategies for equitable park planning, and the search for the next great tree, Trees Matter Presents: Green Cities Summit was packed to the brim with learning, insights, good fun and great people.

Thank you to all who helped make the night so memorable, including our planning partner in crime Montgomery Parks, our enthusiastic presenters and speakers including Michael Dirr and Sonja Duempelmann, and our sponsors Capitol Solutions Group, DeepRoot Green Infrastructure, Greater Greater Washington, SavATree, TreeDiaper, UMD Landscape Architecture, Washington Gardener Magazine, and others.

Most of all – thank you! Having such a vibrant and interested crowd there to discuss the future of trees and our rapidly growing cities made the Summit something special. We’ll see you next year or at a planting, inventory, or class this spring!
