In this webinar, James Urban (www.jamesurban.net) will discuss how urban planning decisions impact long term health of urban trees. Urban will address the biological and arboricultural basis for understanding spacing between trees, canopy gap openings, and water harvesting into soil below paving. These aesthetic design issues affect trees and the sustainability of urban development projects and landscapes. He will share critical lessons and solutions learned throughout his career working with urban trees. Urban has written and lectured extensively on soils and tree planting, and has contributed to many current specifications on these topics. He is a visiting scholar at Harvard University and has been recognized by ISA and ASLA. His most recent book is Up by Roots.
