Field monitoring of urban trees is essential to learn how urban forests change over time. Many arborists and urban forest managers worldwide seek to understand how their tree systems are faring in terms of growth, health, and mortality. The Urban Tree G
Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) was first discovered in southeastern Michigan in 2002.
Trees grow with, and adjust to, large lateral and vertical loads caused by wind and gravity. Storms with strong winds and ice can push trees beyond their ability to reconfigure or fall back to reduce drag.
Trees constitute the foundation of our natural ecosystems and contribute considerable value to the economy.
With increased intensification in cities throughout the world, urban trees are often at risk of becoming damaged by construction impacts, such as utility trenching or pavement / sidewalk repair.
Across the country, a number of cities are setting ambitious tree canopy goals to fight the trend of a decline in tree canopy.
The restoration of trees remains among the most effective strategies for climate change

The results of 14 years of monitoring ash mortality and forest ecosystems in Ohio and Pennsylvania show how EAB has impacted these landscapes.
We will explore how researchers from ecology, forestry and arboriculture have utilized biomechanics to understand how trees contend with the forces mother nature can throw at them during their long-life span.
