Please join us for the Mayors’ Symposium on Trees and Statewide Arbor Day Celebration on February 14th at Trees Atlanta. Registration is free for mayors. We will highlight your campus or city’s 2016 Arbor Day successes, take photos of your tree board with State Forester Robert Farris, and prepare an individual news release for your city or campus. Your mayor can also have an opportunity to say a few words at the luncheon as well. Please call or email Susan (678-476-6227, sgranbery@gfc.state.ga.us) in advance to make arrangements regarding speaking or other announcements.
