Title: Putting Urban Forest Theory Into Practice: Tree Risk, Pests, and Storms
Description: The field of forestry and arboriculture has matured greatly in the last several decades. Researchers and policy-makers have recommended and developed best management guides, systems for tree assessment and inventory and operational databases, to name a few advances. New York City has had the opportunity to put many of these recommendations to the test. This talk will look at three areas of urban forest management: tree risk, pest, and storm response to explore how the Parks Department has adapted standards.
