Doug will present a program on the NeighborWoods Tree Program, a partnership between Raleigh and its residents, and how we can become involved. He will also give an overview of the city’s cultural resources and explain the Memorial Tree Program.

Doug’s gardening interest began at an early age, following in the shadows of his grandmother. He holds a degree in Forest Management and served 16 years as a NC Forest Ranger. He became an ISA Certified Arborist in 2004. In January 2016, Doug began working with the City of Raleigh as their Tree Planting Coordinator.
