Stormwater Goes Green: The Benefit and Health of Trees in Green Stormwater Infrastructure

This webcast was delivered on Jan. 29, 2018 by Andrew Tirpak through Forester University. It describes some of his research results looking at trees in bioretention practices in TN and NC.

Learning Objectives
By participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Learn how the health of trees in bioretention practices compares to other urban trees and understand the design and environmental factors that are most influential to tree health in these systems
  • Discover the contributions trees provide to the hydrologic and pollutant removal performance of bioretention practices and how they vary among tree species
  • Gain exposure to, and understand the performance capabilities of, green infrastructure technologies designed to simultaneously manage urban runoff and promote tree health
  • Understand how bioretention design and meteorological parameters impact tree function in bioretention suspended pavement systems
