Dr. Cecil Konijnendijk van den Bosch has been studying, teaching, and advising on urban forestry for close to 30 years. His work has taken him across the globe, where he has worked with local and national governments in over 20 countries. At UBC Cecil is the Program Director of the Master of Urban Forestry Leadership and professor of urban forestry (on leave). Cecil is also the editor-in-chief of the journal Arboriculture and Urban Forestry.
Urban trees and nature, and the many ways in which we relate to these, are Cecil’s passion. But he also loves traveling, reading, following professional sports, and the incidental karaoke session.
