Urban stormwater is a major contributor to surface water degradation in the United States, prompting cities to invest in green infrastructure - methods that naturally capture, store, and slowly release runoff, such as urban trees.
While green stormwater infrastructure increases in popularity, we are still learning about the role of trees in these innovative practices.
A soil moisture sensor-based automated irrigation system was trialed in a commercial floriculture greenhouse to determine what benefits these types of systems may offer to herbaceous ornamental producers.
A Climate Learning Network/ANREP Climate Science Initiative collaboration in partnership with the Ogallala Water Coordinated Agriculture Project, this webinar will introduce a series of tools for scheduling irrigation for improved water management and w
A collaboration between ANREP and the Climate Learning Network (CLN), this webinar will provide an overview of CONSERVE, a USDA-NIFA-funded project tasked with facilitating the adoption of on-farm solutions that enable the safe use of nontraditional irr
The water quality benefits of forests are widely accepted, yet very few studies have successfully quantified the runoff and pollutant-reducing impacts of trees in the urban landscape.
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?
In spite of the proven value of trees for reducing stormwater flows and pollutants, there remains a widespread lack of understanding, acceptance, and credibility of their use for managing stormwater.
