The nation’s forest land area remains stable, but the composition and distribution of those forests is changing.
Although the effects of climate on species richness are known, regional processes
may lead to different species richness–climate relationships across continents
Learn about how to evaluate sites that are ideal for urban tree health and growth and resources and tools on how to better assess these sites.
Check out this exciting webinar that covers which cities around the world are considered "green" and have a significant amount of green spaces and forest cover and what impact that is having on the economy, people, and environment.
