Empirical studies of the relationship between aspects of the landscape and human emotions have been fruitful over the last few decades. In fact, we are awash in data that describes a correlation between natural landscapes and positive human feelings.
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.
Inclement weather, particularly severe thunderstorms and wintry precipitation, is a major cause of damage to urban forests.
Trees provide significant benefits to our homes and communities, but they may also become liabilities when they fall or break apart, causing property damage, personal injuries, and power outages.
U.S. urban land increased from 2.6% (57.9 million acres) in 2000 to 3.0% (68.0 million acres) in 2010. States with the greatest amount of urban growth were in the South/Southeast (TX, FL, NC, GA and SC).
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.
