Theme: Open – Everything Trees!

Important! Put “Festival of the Trees” in the subject line of your email

2011 is the International Year of Forests, and local ecologist Dr. Georgia Silvera Seamans is celebrating with Festival of the Trees #65 (her second Festival this year).  Here is your opportunity to join the conversations at Georgia’s blog and investigate intersections of urban life and wildlife.

We invite you to take a closer look at your sidewalk this October, then send us the tree report. Show us spring fruit blossoms, sugar maple autumn leaves, tenacious rock-crunching roots, and shady canopied streets nestled in the oldest parts of your city. Show us which trees signal weather where you live, or get away from the city and show us what the local forests are up to.

We hope you’ll also share any juicy tree goodies you find online in your travels. Just send us the permalink, and we’ll do the rest.

We love trees & you love trees & trees need volunteers: win-win-win!

Celebrate forests and host Festival of the Trees at your blog. To volunteer, please contact us and pick your month. You don’t have you be a nature nut or a science nerd (both are welcome), all you need is a blog on any topic and a desire to host conversations about trees.

Psssst – spread the good word with some tree blog bling.

Important! Put “Festival of the Trees” in the subject line of your email

Gather your ribbons, flags, and shovels! The Festival of the Trees 58 honors Arbor Day celebrations and other real-world tree festivals. Our returning host is Dr. Georgia Silvera Seamans of the local ecologist, a blog of “wide ranging urban ecological ruminations.” Georgia previously hosted Festivals #33 which covers the tree gamut (silo trees, tree top adventures, anyone?) and #40 which explores the innumerable benefits of trees.

This month we invite you to share the news about tree festivals, Arbor Day tree plantings, and other celebrations of trees and forests. Tree-lighting ceremonies, chain-saw competitions, logging shows, wood crafts, tree-planting events, and giddy woodland frolics are all welcome for a complimentary booth at the Festival of the Trees 58.

Remember you can send us links to news about tree celebrations other than your own. Be sure to submit the complete permalink to your article/post/media so we can include it.

Contact us to volunteer to host an edition of the Festival of the Trees at your blog.
