Our guest speaker is Dana Sussman, a senior forester with the Florida Forest Service. Her presentation is titled "If everyone plants a tree, you have a forest/The impact of trees". Dana Sussmann began her career with the Florida Forest Service in 1989 in South Florida and relocated to Central Florida in 1994. She received a Bachelor of Forest Science from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She is an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist, Project Learning Tree Facilitator, and Certified Burner.
She enjoys providing private landowners with the tools they need to better manage their forests. The opportunity to educate youth and adults about the positive impact forestland has on our well being in Florida and on our planet, and the economy is a very rewarding part of her job.
30 free trees will be given away at the meeting.
