Urban Forestry LLC has provided presentations on a wide range of urban forestry topics and to many different audiences. Our presentations range from one-hour lectures, to outside demonstrations, to all-day workshops. Below is a selected list of recent topics and audiences.

These presentations can be modified to fit your needs and context; if you are interested in having one of them presented for an occasion, please contact the author. We also can develop a new presentation in related areas, though that requires quite a bit more time (actual amount depends on the topic)--again, contact one of us if you are interested in this service.
