Title: THE SALT DILEMMA: Growing Better Urban Trees in Northern Climates
Date & Time: Tuesday, 5 February, 7:00PM BST, 8:00PM CEST, 9:00PM EEST.
Can urban trees and city winter weather protocols peacefully co-exist? Join Utah State University Forestry Extension for a discussion on the latest research findings related to successfully growing trees under these conditions. Dr. Andrew Millward will walk us through his investigation of the surprising decline and mortality of trees planted using soil cells in a recent urban revitalization project in Toronto. While the research suggested salt was the culprit, there were a number of other factors. The project opened a discussion about changes to the way we design and manage urban trees. Adam Nicklin will offer options to reduce salt damage to trees, and talk about the role landscape architects can play in helping the urban canopy thrive.
Presented by: Dr Andrew Millward, Principal Investigator, Ryerson University (CA) Urban Forest Research and Ecological Disturbance (UFRED) Group; Adam Nicklin, principal & co-founder of Public Work, Toronto CA
