Description: 

This webinar will discuss urban forestry and Green Infrastructure (GI) principles, projects, and best management practices that are feasible in small and urban interface communities. Smaller communities, particularly those in urban interface areas, face different challenges than larger urban communities in applying landscape-level community forestry and GI practices. The webinar will highlight some current projects looking at the barriers to GI planning in these smaller and more rural communities.

Our guest speaker is Paul D. Ries who has over 25 years of urban forestry experience at the municipal, state, national, international, non-profit, and academic levels. Currently,he is an Instructor and Director of the online Graduate Certificate in Urban Forestry program at Oregon State University and manages the Urban and Community Forestry Assistance program for the Oregon Department of Forestry.
