Since its inception in 2003, the Midwest Urban Tree Care Forum (MUTCF) has been providing students a unique opportunity to engage with professionals and other students in urban forestry, arboriculture, horticulture, and other green industries and professions. The goal of MUTCF is to present the many facets of the green industry, urban forestry and tree care by touring sites, projects, and programs. Presentations span commercial, municipal, utility, and non-profit topics of our industry. The annual event also includes a career fair, dinner, raffle, and many opportunities to interact with industry professionals. Over the past ten years over 552 students from 15 universities and colleges have attended this annual conference. Nearly 50% of MUTCF student conferees have become commercial arborists and 75% of the conferees are influencing urban trees in some capacity. Many summer jobs and permanent careers have been secured at MUTCF and we strongly encourage that attending students bring along a resume. Click on the image to go to the MUTCF website.
