Ready to get tree smart? The 8th Annual Big Tree Summit, hosted by TreesCharlotte and the city of Charlotte and sponsored by Bartlett Tree Experts, has more ways than ever to improve your tree IQ. 

First, a few changes: We’ve moved the Summit to May to take advantage of the outdoors. Second, it’s happening on a Saturday morning, a more convenient time for busy people. And third, we’ve quadrupled the number of workshops!

Here’s a sneak peek at the details:
