Trees grow with, and adjust to, large lateral and vertical loads caused by wind and gravity. Storms with strong winds and ice can push trees beyond their ability to reconfigure or fall back to reduce drag.
With increased intensification in cities throughout the world, urban trees are often at risk of becoming damaged by construction impacts, such as utility trenching or pavement / sidewalk repair.
Phytoremediation is a green technology that utilizes specialized trees to remediate contaminated soils across the rural to urban continuum.
The goal of the webinar is to provide an overview of soil management for urban trees. Specific emphasis will be given to soil assessment.
Join Jenica Allen and Bethany Bradley to learn about new tools for identifying and prioritizing range-shifting invasive plants coming soon to a landscape near you.
