Trees & Utilities will be here before you know it

Here are a couple of housekeeping items for those planning to join us in Pittsburgh, September 12 – 14, 2023:

  • If you haven’t signed up to attend the conference, save on Early Bird Pricing ($450) now through August 30. Register.
  • Our main hotel and the overflow hotel are booked. Rooms may still be available, but no longer at the group rate.
  • If you plan to exhibit at T&U, double your impact by supporting our first-ever Silent Auction. This fundraiser will benefit the Nelsen Money Memorial Scholarship Program and reforestation efforts for the Arbor Day Foundation.
  • Pack your golf clubs and play in the annual TREE Fund golf outing fundraiser, sponsored by our friends at Asplundh Tree Expert, LLC. Space is still available at Top Golf, so get a group or sign up as a single today.
