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.
In response to drought conditions, urban population growth, and dwindling water supplies in Utah, Utah State University (USU) Extension implemented a study using soil moisture meters.
This webinar covers how green roofs and other green spaces are being used to address urban heat across the country.
Improving urban forests is one of the solutions to achieving several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and making cities healthier and more livable for people.
The effects of urban development write a profound signature on the landscape. Soils are inevitably compacted and regraded or paved over.

Participants will learn about the potential impacts of climate change on 125 tree species of the eastern US.
While green stormwater infrastructure increases in popularity, we are still learning about the role of trees in these innovative practices.
Hurricane Florence dumped as much as three feet of water on parts of Southeastern North Carolina. This occurred only 1 year after massive flooding in Houston, Texas. Epic rainfall events, while still 'epic,' may no longer be considered infrequent.
A strategic framework for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change. Cities utilize climate action plans as roadmaps for achieving emissions reductions and improving community resilience.
