Preface

The history and goals of the Metropolitan Tree Improvement Alliance have been well covered in an article in the Journal of Arboriculture 4(3): 62-66, 1978. Following the enthusiasm generated by the Symposium "Better Trees for Metropolitan Landscapes" that was held at the U.S. National Arboretum, November 4-6, 1975, METRIA held its first regular meeting in July 1976. This is the Proceedings of that meeting.

Acknowledgements

The officers and members of METRIA are deeply indebted to their counterparts in the Northeastern Forest Tree Improvement Confernece for allowing us to "tag along" in a joint-meeting format for our initial venture. All participants believed that this arrangement was of benefit to all parties.

We also gratefully acknowledge the cooperation of the U. S. Forest Service, Northeastern Area, State and Private Forestry in providing support and publication of these Proceedings. "Urban Forestry" is a multi-faceted discipline requiring the cooperation and interest of all concerned with the future of "trees for people."
