Our ArbNet community continues to grow! ArbNet has accreditations in 11 countries. We have also approved three accreditation upgrades so far this year. Have you considered upgrading your accreditation level? We received many submissions for our first capacity building grant. Grant notifications will be sent out November 1st! The accreditation renewal process has begun for those arboreta whose accreditation is five years old.  The process involves a new renewal checklist accessed in our Resource section of the website (while you're there check out our many other great resources!)
Featured Arboretum
National Tropical Botanical Garden was recently accredited at Level IV and just hosted the IUCN World Conservation Congress.  NTBG’s Hawai‘i locations hold the largest assemblage of native Hawaiian species. Many are listed as Threatened or Endangered or have already disappeared from their native habitats.

The Community Trees Program helps communities, public and private landowners, land managers, tree professionals, and groups interested in trees to effectively manage and care for our urban and community forest.  Listed below is a selection of great resources they offer for all to use, many of which are especially relevant to municipalities planning to arboretum accreditation.

ANNUAL PLANT SALE IS BACK
A NEW NETWORK
A new professional network is being formed by botanists and conservationists from across North and Central America. Oaks of the Americas Conservation Network (OACN) is a consortium of experts from universities, botanical gardens, arboreta, industry, conservation NGOs, and government agencies dedicated to protecting threatened oak species from extinction.

HAVE YOUR SAY ON INVASIVES
We need your help to identify, monitor and manage plants that escape cultivation and invade natural areas to disrupt ecosystems. The Morton Arboretum, Midwest Invasive Plant Network, and Ohio Invasive Plants Council are asking the ArbNet community to take a short survey to help understand the current role and perspective of arboreta when dealing with invasive plant species. Results will be shared and analyzed at an upcoming workshop at The Morton Arboretum.
