Maintaining Magnificence: Tree Preservation in Our Community Forests
Thursday, June 2, 2016 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
World Forestry Center, Miller Hall
We know the myriad benefits trees provide, but how do we value, preserve, and care for healthy mature trees, stands of trees, and forested corridors in and around our cities? Can large beautiful trees co-exist with new housing developments? Is there a better way to include and plan for the care of these great community trees that have literally stood the test of time? What options do satellite and GIS technologies provide in assisting communities to effectively maintain the magnificence of these trees?
