Urban Forestry Videos

We are proud to announce that “Green Brings Green” a short film created for the Mississippi Forestry Commission, won a bronze Telly in the “Online Video - Education” category of the 36th annual awards in 2015. It was a pleasure to work with Tellos Creative to develop a short film that both educates and stimulates resource professionals that manage urban and community forests in Mississippi.
