Diversify Now! Increasing Resilience of Urban Forests by Expanding Species Diversity (Webinar)

Tuesday, June 20th, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Presented by Andrew Hillman, Davey Resource Group

A changing climate and mounting threats from pests and diseases pose challenges to ensuring the continued health of the urban forest. Subjects such as assisted migration, phenotypic plasticity, monotypic species, urban microclimates, and hardy cultivars will be discussed. One example will be southern magnolias thriving for many years as street trees in upstate New York.
