Urban foresters have long known that good soil quality makes for healthy, long-lived trees that can weather the ups and downs of droughts and the stresses of urban living. Although urban soils are often poor, there are ways to counteract “compacted urban soil syndrome.” This roundtable will look at the research surrounding current soil amendments and examine costs and benefits of two:  biosolids and biochar.

There is a $5.00 registration fee for everyone attending.

The total registration fee is $15.00 if you would like lunch provided.
