Webinar: Drought and Urban Forests

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 2:00 PM EDT

Please join the USDA Office of Sustainability and Climate for a webinar about urban forest health in the face of a changing climate.

Recent droughts have caused stress and mortality in urban forests, reducing the cooling, clean air, and carbon storage provided by trees. Because human populations are growing in most U.S. cities, it will become increasingly important to maintain healthy, productive urban forests. Scientists and urban foresters are working together to quantify recent drought-related stress and find management strategies for sustainable urban landscapes.
