Director of Operations
Louisiana Community Forests, State UCF Coordinator
Christopher grew up on a small forested, organic subsistence farm in Bush, Louisiana, where he learned to appreciate ecological and agricultural sustainability. That passion took him to Louisiana State University to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Plant and Soil Science, which sparked Cooper’s interest in arboriculture and urban forestry. Today, he aspires to fill the urban environment with food-producing landscapes that are not only ecologically rich in diversity but also aesthetically engaging.
Christopher is an ISA-certified arborist and has earned a Tree Risk Assessment Qualifications (TRAQ) certificate and from ISA (International Society of Arboriculture).
Christopher’s favorite native tree is a Parsley Hawthorne.
