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.
Across the country, a number of cities are setting ambitious tree canopy goals to fight the trend of a decline in tree canopy.
Historic urban grasslands include greenspaces of historic value designed for passive and active recreation in the human built environment.

The Minnesota Stormwater Seminar Series brings nationally recognized experts in stormwater management and green infrastructure to Minnesota for dialogue and discussion.
Stormwater is a source of water pollution that poses challenges for many communities.
Participants will learn how to begin sub-metering utilities on their campus and how this data can inform and justify not only the cost of the sub-meters, but of energy efficiency projects as well.
This webinar covers how green roofs and other green spaces are being used to address urban heat across the country.
The effects of urban development write a profound signature on the landscape. Soils are inevitably compacted and regraded or paved over.
