The Association's TIPS Community presents a "Technology Tuesday" on the Association's PlantSnap Initiative featuring PlantSnap founder Eric Ralls. Find out how your garden can participate in this exciting citizen science project.
Join Jenica Allen and Bethany Bradley to learn about new tools for identifying and prioritizing range-shifting invasive plants coming soon to a landscape near you.
The history of the Morris Arboretum can be told through its eldest trees. Every scar and abnormality present on these immense specimens inspire awe, enrich visitor experience, and provide a glimpse into the past of the gardens.
This project offers a blueprint for the ideal level of maintenance needed to keep this area of the garden aesthetically pleasing and well -kept into the future.
Improving urban forests is one of the solutions to achieving several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and making cities healthier and more livable for people.

The purpose of a Natural Areas Land Management Plan for the Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum is to create a forward-focused systematic document that covers the most essential topics for land management.
This tree plan, not only comprises a history of trees that once stood in the Park and catalogues the trees currently standing, but also directs the succession and maintenance of the tree canopy that future generations of Park users will enjoy.
The Center for Watershed Protection reviewed a total of 159 publications to evaluate the research questions defined in the scope of this project:
1. What is the effectiveness of urban tree planting on reducing runoff, nutrient and sediment?
As public gardens continue to place increased emphasis on sustainable landscape and operational strategies, learning to look to the sciences of ecology and natural areas management becomes of greater practical
