2022 Northeastern Mensurationist Organization (NEMO) Annual Meeting
Save the Date
After a two year hiatus, we look forward joining together this year for our traditional one and half day event. While NEMO is normally a fall event, we are holding it this year in May to avoid conflicting with the continental event scheduled in Portland, OR in December.
As is tradition with NEMO, we will be soliciting presentations for all things related to forest mensuration and even a few topics not so closely related. Students are encouraged to present their work.
For individuals interested in giving a presentation, please send a title and short abstract to John Kershaw. For questions or concerns about the event, please reach out to Mark Ducey or Aaron Weiskittel.
May 23 – May 24, 2022 – Urban Forestry Center, near Portsmouth NH.
Social Event Sunday, May 22 at the Portsmouth Brewery starting at 5pm.
