Webinar: Resilient Trees for a New Climate

Thursday, July 16, 2020 - 10:00am to 11:30am

Our climate is changing rapidly and diversification of tree species in our cities is not happening fast enough to keep up. How can we ensure a resilient urban forest for the long term? Planting more trees is a solution, but they must be trees that will survive.  

In this webinar, learn about the impending ramifications of climate change for the current palette of Bay Area trees and the advantage of turning to warmer city counterparts for species selection. Find out why a diversity of oak and native species can lead to long-term resilience and why this resilience matters for ecosystem and public health. Certified Arborists will earn 1.5 ISA CEUs upon completion.
