Title:  More Than Good Looks: How trees influence urban stormwater management in green infrastructure practices

Date & Time:  Wednesday, 9 January 2019, 6:00PM BST, 7:00PM CEST, 8:00PM EEST. 

While green stormwater infrastructure increases in popularity, we are still learning about the role of trees in these innovative practices. This webinar will discuss: 

• recent research results from studies designed to characterize the health of trees in bioretention practices and the benefits they provide to urban stormwater management;

• observations from the management of bioretention and detention ponds; how design, installation, and maintenance practices affect tree health and water quality function. 

This information can help stormwater engineers, urban foresters, and landscape professionals be successful in integrating trees into stormwater management efforts.

Presenters:  Andrew Tirpak, University of Tennesse, Lyn Rutherford, City of Chattanooga TN
