Urban Forestry Webinar with the Center for Watershed Protection

Wednesday, October 26, 2022
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Contact Brooke Frusher in our office to register!

The environmental benefits of forests are widely accepted, and research studies are ongoing to evaluate the runoff and pollutant-reducing impacts of trees in the urban landscape. This webcast will present research focused on the role of trees in modifying urban water and energy balances by turning stormwater into an opportunity, and how to use the i-Tree HydroPlus model to simulate stormwater runoff and pollutant loading, urban heat island effects, and other benefits. The second half of the talk will provide insights into “scaling-up” these and other green infrastructure practices–such as soil water infiltration in urban vacant lots–to best understand their watershed-level effects.
