This is an example of how a historic landscape and public garden used GIS to map, track, and monitor tree health on their grounds.
This paper is intended to help the stormwater engineering community more easily account for trees in runoff and pollutant load calculations so that they can more readily incorporate them into their stormwater management strategies.
It is now almost three years since world leaders agreed to chart a course towards a better, more prosperous future for the planet and all its people.
These 2 publications from Arboriculture and Urban Forests (Volume 43, Issue 1) share important information and reserach conducted on climate resilience of trees in urban areas:
The maintenance and expansion of urban forests is a major challenge in periods of low rainfall and restricted availability of appropriate-quality water sources for trees.
Urban forests produce ecosystem services that can beneﬁt city dwellers, but are especially vulnerable to climate change stressors such as heat, drought, extreme winds and pests.
The first TGI report, published in 2015, identified eight critical gaps slowing the transfer of stress-adapted trees from upstream research to forest owners and managers. The gaps fell into three categories: Innovation, Policy, and Markets.
“Which plants should I grow, and how many?” The IMLS National Leadership Project, Safeguarding our Tree Collections, seeks to answer this fundamental question.
Across the world, companies with a wide range of business models are making money from planting trees.
Presented by Ray Leimkuehler from Desert Botanical Garden at the 2018 Small Gardens Symposium, this presentation covers tree management, planning, and urban forest modeling for small gardens.
