Victoria to host Urban Forest Conference

Tree experts from across the country and the Pacific Northwest are coming to the Victoria Conference Centre in 2014 to discuss urban forestry.

Victoria, partnering with Saanich, Oak Bay and the Capital Regional District, submitted the winning bid to host Tree Canada’s 11th Canadian Urban Forest Conference. The bid highlighted the region's leadership in areas such as tree-protection bylaws, urban forest master plans, street tree plantings, plus tree inventories and mapping.
