AGENDA "Soil Volume for Urban Tree Stress Reduction and Stormwater Management"

Climate change will stress our existing urban forests through new weather patterns, changes in pest and disease distributions and other unforeseen issues.  There is little urban foresters can do today to address these future stressors, but we can eliminate existing stressors, like inadequate soil volume and irrigation as we plant the future urban forests.  By providing our new trees with a good foundation, we can help them deal with the stress of climate changes.
