Urban Forestry Coordinator Jennifer Rall has been elected to serve a three-year term on the North Carolina Urban Forest Council (NCUFC) Board of Directors.
The NCUFC is comprised of individuals, citizen groups, nonprofit organizations, businesses and agencies from around the state that share an interest in community and urban forestry.
A nonprofit organization, the NCUFC helps communities strengthen the efforts of local groups by serving as a resource, a forum for networking and discussion, and an advocate of the urban forest. The council seeks to encourage and support these communities in their urban forest management efforts.
NCUFC hosts conferences and workshops across the state for training and networking opportunities and co-sponsors conferences with others in the green industry. Its members promote the benefits of urban forest management and healthy community forests. The council also educates elected officials and decision-makers about important issues affecting the future of trees in North Carolina’s communities.
Rall joined the Town of Wake Forest in October 2014. As Wake Forest’s Urban Forestry Coordinator, she manages the town’s urban forestry program. In this capacity, she oversees the planting, removal and maintenance of trees and other vegetation located on public property and rights-of-way. Rall also promotes public education initiatives through community-wide landscaping projects and informative seminars.
