Mary Tebo Davis joined the Hillsborough County Cooperative Extension Team in 1996. As Community Forestry Educator. Mary’s primary responsibility is to run the NH Community Tree Steward Volunteer Program, which she has coordinated since 1993. The Tree Steward Program is an innovative approach to volunteer stewardship in urban forestry. The program is a partnership between UNH Cooperative Extension, the NH Division of Forests and Lands, and the US Forest Service. Mary is responsible for providing the Tree Steward volunteers with a comprehensive education and training program in urban forestry. Once steward training is complete, Mary works with the volunteers as they begin projects in their local communities. Projects include tree inventories, tree planting and maintenance, urban ecosystem management and regreening of vacant lots, and model city landscapes.
