Urban Forestry – Managing Complex Ecosystems (Webinar)

When: June 15, 2023, from 12 – 1 PM
Where: Online via Zoom

Cities are complex, interconnected systems that support habitats and livelihoods. Their outwards and upwards growth has transformed the landscape at an unprecedented rate, uprooting native species and introducing invasive ones. Human activity has altered waterways and drainage systems; the composition of flora and fauna; fire risk and the presence of heat islands; along with the global climate. Managing this newfound complexity within the urban environment requires the specialization and expertise of a team of individuals, including the urban forester.

Join us for a conversation with experts in the field who will delve deeper into some of the most pressing challenges facing the urban forestry profession today and the work underway to find solutions.
