Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham, North Carolina has put together a storm preparedness plan in anticipation of more frequent extreme storms.
The increased hurricane activity predicted for future decades has serious implications for the important work of Montgomery Botanical Center (MBG).
This Plan is intended to outline plans for preparing for emergencies and for immediate response and short-term recovery efforts in an emergency.
Ice or snow loads can cause branch breakage or failure of entire trees and shrubs. Branches or entire trees that fall in storms can impact homes, vehicles, power lines and block roads.
Climate change is affecting public landscapes now. Research into managing existing landscapes and designing new ones is critical if our parks and gardens are to adapt.
