Dave MacFarlane, Michigan State University; Leslie Brandt, US Forest Service. Sponsored by Michigan State University. Register here.

Urban forests provide an important role in helping communities adapt to climate change, but also are vulnerable to changes in climate. Leslie will share how urban trees can be evaluated for their vulnerability, focusing on a recent assessment completed for Detroit. Dave will present data from both past and recent studies to discuss the potential for trees in urban areas to uptake carbon and provide shade as means of influencing climate.
