More Than Good Looks: How trees influence urban stormwater management in green infrastructure practices
In this webinar, Andrew Tirpak discusses recent research results from studies designed to characterize the health of trees in bioretention practices and the benefits they provide to urban stormwater management. Lyn Rutherford shares observations from managing bioretention and detention ponds in Chattanooga, TN.
While green stormwater infrastructure increases in popularity, we are still learning about the role of trees in these innovative practices. This information can help stormwater engineers, urban foresters, and landscape professionals be successful in integrating trees into stormwater management efforts.
