Managing Urban Forests in a Changing Climate
November 18-19, 2014
Thornhill Education Center, The Morton Arboretum, Lisle, IL
Learn how you can help your urban forest and your communities prepare for the effects of climate. This two-day conference will focus on practical concerns for those who manage trees in cities and suburbs, such as how the changes in climate are expected to affect trees’ biology and growing conditions; shifts and increases in pests and diseases; managing for extreme storms and severe drought; and how trees can help communities adapt to conditions such as greater stormwater loads.
Early bird registration closes October 30th! Registration and more information at: mortonarb.org/urbantreeconference
