Urban Watershed Forestry Manual: Part 2

This manual is Part 2 of a three-part series on using trees to protect and restore urban watersheds.

"Conserving and Planting Trees at Development Sites presents specific ways to enable developers, engineers, or landscape architects to incorporate more trees into a development site. The proposed approach focuses on protecting existing trees, planting trees in storm water treatment practices, and planting trees in other open spaces at a development site. This part introduces conceptual designs for storm water treatment practices that utilize trees as part of the design (referred to as storm water forestry practices.) These designs were developed with input from experts in storm water engineering, forestry, and a range of related fields."
