Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) is an enormously important metric for foresters, arborists, researchers, contractors, and the general public.
Diversification of urban forests is essential to enhance their resilience to future biotic
threats as well as those posed by a changing climate. Arboreta and botanic gardens
To keep pace with the increasing impacts of climate change, people across the country are planting more and more trees. But how will you track these trees to make sure you get the optimal return on this investment of time and resources?
Positive interactions between people and nature inspire behaviours that are in harmony
with biodiversity conservation and also afford physical and mental health benefits.

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.
