Tree health and risk is heavily influenced by the health and quality of the soil surrounding it. Soil provides trees with essential nutrients, water, support, gas exchange, and more, but these services are limited when, for example, soil is compromised through pollution, compaction, and limited root volume. In this webinar, you will learn about the biological and arboricultural basis for managing soils of community trees, including understanding spacing between trees, canopy gap openings, water harvesting into soil below pavement, protection during construction, and recommended soil volumes. The webinar will explore how aesthetic design issues affect trees and the sustainability of urban development projects and landscapes. Join us in learning why soil is one of the most important parts of maintaining a viable and long-lived community tree canopy. The target audience for this webinar are Cooperative Extension Agents.
