More Housing, More Trees: Giving Oregonians Both

The 2024 Oregon Urban & Community Forestry Conference will be held on Thursday, June 27th in Eugene. Hosted by Oregon Community Trees, this annual conference is supported by the Oregon Department of Forestry and USDA Forest Service.

This year’s conference will bring advocates for more housing, greater density, and infill in existing residential neighborhoods together with advocates for preserving and expanding urban forest canopy to ensure the health and well-being of Oregon’s residents.
OCT is proud to present this year’s opening speaker, Kaarin Knudson. Knudson is a licensed architect and educator with more than 20 years’ experience advancing sustainable design and community-led solutions. In 2017, she founded the housing advocacy organization Better Housing Together (BHT), to increase housing affordability, diversity and supply in Lane County. She now teaches a graduate urban design workshop at the University of Oregon and is co-author of The Sustainable Urban Design Handbook.

The 2024 conference will include two panel sessions discussing the preservation of large mature trees during development and how to offset the loss of trees by replanting and maintaining existing trees.

Early bird tickets are on sale through May 24th, 2024. Get your tickets today!
