    While our urban forests are threatened by both climate change and rapid urbanization, they're also part of the solution. Trees — the backbone of nature in our urban areas — sequester carbon and provide many other environmental and public health benefits. We need to protect and plant more trees in our cities, but which trees, and where, and how?  This webinar offers guidance from Bay Area experts on ways to ensure resilient urban forests, providing useful tools to decision-makers, from elected officials to city planners, arborists, tree growers, and landscape architects.

    Webinar featuring:
    • Dr. Erica Spotswood, Director of Science and Senior Ecologist, Second Nature
    • Dave Muffly, Former Senior Arborist, Apple
    • Dr. Dave Fujino, Director, California Center for Urban Horticulture
