CWP Webcast: Making Urban Trees Count
Wed, June 21, 2017, 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM EDT
Come join us in our office as we view this webcast, hosted by the Center for Watershed Protection. Attendees will recieve a certificate of attendance and other resources approximately 1 week after the event.
The water quality benefits of forests are widely accepted, yet very few studies have successfully quantified the runoff and pollutant-reducing impacts of trees in the urban landscape. Using everything from individual street trees up to small patches of forest as a stormwater best management practice (BMP) is hampered by this uncertainty of how to “credit” urban trees for runoff and pollutant load reduction. This webcast will review the available stormwater crediting systems for urban tree planting and will present a new crediting system that includes a design specification for urban tree planting that can be integrated into state and local compliance systems for stormwater management, TMDLs and other water quality requirements.
