Empirical studies of the relationship between aspects of the landscape and human emotions have been fruitful over the last few decades. In fact, we are awash in data that describes a correlation between natural landscapes and positive human feelings.
It is now almost three years since world leaders agreed to chart a course towards a better, more prosperous future for the planet and all its people.
The second edition of Forest Adaptation Resources: Climate Change Tools and Approaches for Land Managers, like its predecessor, is intended to provide perspective, information, and tools to land managers considering how to adapt forest ecosystems to a c
These 2 publications from Arboriculture and Urban Forests (Volume 43, Issue 1) share important information and reserach conducted on climate resilience of trees in urban areas:
The maintenance and expansion of urban forests is a major challenge in periods of low rainfall and restricted availability of appropriate-quality water sources for trees.
Urban forests produce ecosystem services that can beneﬁt city dwellers, but are especially vulnerable to climate change stressors such as heat, drought, extreme winds and pests.
The role of urban forests continues to expand as society recognizes the potential contribution of green infrastructure to global sustainability, human health, and quality of life.
The webinar will provide Extension Agents with information and resources to promote pollinator habitats in urban and suburban forests. Pollinator habitats are important to all landscapes, including urban and suburban forests.
The first TGI report, published in 2015, identified eight critical gaps slowing the transfer of stress-adapted trees from upstream research to forest owners and managers. The gaps fell into three categories: Innovation, Policy, and Markets.
Inclement weather, particularly severe thunderstorms and wintry precipitation, is a major cause of damage to urban forests.
