2004 | Robert Felix Memorial Scholarship
Growing up in suburban Atlanta, GA, Susan has observed a loss in canopy cover due to the explosion of development in the area. This sparked her interest to look for ways to help preserve older urban trees and establish new trees. Susan then began volunteering as an urban tree planter with Trees Atlanta which led to where she is currently; a student at the Warnell School of Forest Resources at the University of Georgia majoring in Environmental Assessment. Most recently, Susan is working on a Neighborhood Forest Assessment project in Athens, GA. Susan aspires to pursue a career in either commercial or municipal arboriculture.
