Alabama Urban Forestry Association Update

Established in 1989, the Alabama Urban Forestry Association (AUFA), is a committed leader in arboriculture and urban forestry. AUFA promotes proper selection, planting and tree care, tree protection and other tree issues in the urban setting. 

The AUFA has been really busy in the past few months with large Arbor Day Foundation tree plantings in Athens, Huntsville, Homewood and Hoover.

The plantings were funded by CSX Transportation, Arbor Day Foundation, Road Runner Moving and our Alabama Re-Leaf Program.These projects introduced AUFA to over 400 event attendees and numerous TV spots and news articles followed.

Download a class card from the Green Industry Web Portal as it promotes the AUFA Annual Conference to be held October 9-11 at our Orange Beach Hampton Inn and the Florence Pesticide Re-cert class on March 8. (Please note the card states March 7, but the actual date is 3/8/19.) 

We continue to work to develop our Utility Vegetation Management Certification Program and the possibilities of adding a Tree Climber’s Competitionto our Annual Conference.
