The Denver botanical gardens and the University of Denver Alter Arboretum are sponsoring the 5^th  annual tree conference on March 15^th , 2018 at the Denver Botanical Gardens.

The theme of the conference is urban trees. To protect the future of urban forests -- which are threatened by pests, pathogens, and changes in the urban and global environments -- a greater variety of tree species are needed. Led by 4 guest speakers, this conference will explore the relationships between landscape design, horticultural practices and the use of a greater variety of tree species in urban habitats.


Between them, our speakers this year boast an extravagant depth of experience ranging from worldwide plant exploration to landscape and garden design, promotion of new plant materials, administration of some of our country's most noted horticultural conferences and institutions and hands-on experience with plant testing and data collection.
