The NOVA Roundtables began in 2005 with the first ever conference titled

"Cleaning the Air with Virginia's Trees"

Thirteen years later, we will be revisiting air quality by looking at Virginia's regulatory framework and discussing recent research on the link between air quality and urban trees. We will also discuss the air quality challenges of urbanized areas and efforts underway, through targeted tree planting, as a localized tool to combat air pollution.
