The evidence is mounting around the compounding benefits of the urban forest. We know trees in cities clean air and water, reduce energy demands, and improve the people's overall quality of life. Yet, tree failure may have serious negative consequences. So, how can we maximize the good and minimize the risk associated with trees growing in the built environment?

More than 4,000 attendees from across government agencies joined together at the Esri 2019 Federal GIS Conference recently in Washington, D.C.
From Jack Dangermond’s vision of a geospatial infrastructure to the modernization of the decennial census, with technology demos throughout, the plenary and keynote sessions highlighted how the government user community is building a GIS for the nation.
Videos from the plenary and keynote sessions are now available to watch and share.
The rapid advancements in remote sensing technology offer a unique opportunity to address the increasing rates of ecosystem degradation and biodiversity loss. Although satellite data have been available for decades, and the use of remote sensing has been increasing, many barriers still exist to leveraging these data for the benefit of conservation planning and management.
Association Director of External Relations Joan Thomas gives an introduction to the MYGARDEN campaign supported by Association affinity partner, MobileCause. Learn how to use this platform to raise money during National Public Gardens Week.
Researchers from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory evaluated five different LED systems with ALC at a test-bed site in Fort Worth, Texas, and provided analysis of the added savings and costs of the controls as well as guidance on where ALC with LED can be best deployed. During the webinar, researchers and facility managers discussed findings from the evaluation, shared operational guidance, and answered questions. This webinar is part of GSA's GPG Outbrief series.
Design, Implementation, and Operation of Modern Wood Energy Systems – Heating, Cooling, Combined Heat and Power
This presentation provides a discussion on design aspects for thermal, CHP, and cooling systems fueled by wood energy. Existing project examples will be used to highlight technology, sizing, and energy system integration approaches. The presentation will also address existing wood energy systems, and provide recommendations for combustion, tuning, and operations to optimize system performance. The presentation will be applicable to a broad range of system types and scales, and will cover applications for industrial, commercial, and forest products industry facilities.
Digital fundraising is about using all the digital channels at your disposal in an integrated way to reach and expand your audiences, spark engagement, and grow your giving opportunities. Developing a digital fundraising strategy is particularly helpful to reach beyond your local community and engage a broader audience interested in supporting your cause.
This presentation will review research that provides scientific basis for EAB management and conservation of ash in urban environments. Results of multiyear insecticide trials with soil applied, trunk injected, and bark applied systemic insecticides show that protection of even very large caliper ash trees is a viable option to consider as part of an integrated management program for EAB.
