Managing Our Urban Forests in A Changing Climate, presented by Katie Rose Levin
February 22, 2024, 9 AM Pacific Time
The vast majority of Americans live in an urban/suburban environment, where trees have historically thrived with little care and scant attention to soil. With increased population, intense urbanization, and climate change, this is no longer the case. Join us to learn about the technology urban foresters are using to successfully plant and manage trees in this newly complex environment. We’ll discuss the technological and social components that determine where trees thrive—or where they die.
Katie Rose Levin teaches urban forestry and greenspace management at Duke University. She runs her own consulting company, City Leaf Works, and helped found two tree planting organizations, Trees for the Triangle and Trees Durham. Katie Rose is a Board-Certified Master Arborist with a Master’s of Forestry and a Master’s of Environmental Management.
