24th annual Urban Forestry Conference

The 24th annual Urban Forestry Conference was recently held at the Memphis Botanic Garden with the theme of ‘Walking in Memphis-The Future of the Urban Forest.’

This conference focused on important issues facing urban forest resource issues. 

The conference concluded with the 17th annual Tree Climbing Competition at the Garden. Contestants competed in five events and the Master’s Challenge for the state title. 

This picture shows MBG staff Chris O’Bryan being ‘rescued’ as an injured climber, by instructor Wes Hopper, for teaching purposes.
