Each year, the Nebraska Forest Service recognizes outstanding programs and projects in community forestry. These awards are intended to distinguish those who have had a positive impact on the tree resources that make Nebraska a better place to live, work and play. The 2019 awards ceremony was held in August during the Nebraska Arborists Association’s Summer Field Day at Carol Joy Holling Center.

Extension Educator Sarah Browning received the Educator Award, which goes to an individual, school or organization educating Nebraskans about the importance of trees and the history of Arbor Day. Sarah, a certified arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture, provides education through a weekly news column that goes out to several media outlets, social media, classroom programs and one-on-one consultations.
