Thanks to City of Norfolk Forester Michael Nentwich for the lesson on a skill that will have me traveling to several neighborhoods to help out on the 40,000+ trees needing some TLC.

Panel speakers were very informative, and included Christine Morris (Chief Resilience Officer, City of Norfolk), Rick Weddle (President & CEO of Hampton Roads Economic Development Alliance) and Paul Olsen (Director of Programs and Partnerships, Old Dominion University).
