Camden hires urban forester

Jul 23, 2010 7:42:00 AM - thestate.com

The city of Camden has hired its first urban forester, Liz Gilland, who has worked in community forestry for state government for some 18 years.

The position was created to manage and care for the city’s trees, valued at nearly $34 million in a recent inventory, according to a City Hall news release.

Gilland started with the S.C. Forestry Commission in 1992 to help replant the state after Hurricane Hugo. She moved to community forestry in 1993 and, in that job, provided technical and educational assistance to local governments and civic groups.

Gilland starts work Aug. 2.
