UBC Webinar: Urban Tree Trouble: Insights from Stanley Park

Loading Events

Hear an expert panel discuss urban forestry issues during a webinar presented by alumni UBC.

Urban foresters manage community green spaces such as Stanley Park in settings under increased pressure from the effects of climate change and population growth. Looper moth-killed trees, water scarcity, and extreme heat add layers of complexity to urban landscape management.

In Urban Tree Trouble: Insights from Stanley Park, urban foresters share insights about this valuable community resource, along with present and emerging best practices in the field. Also, hear what role residents play in decisions surrounding living infrastructure in their neighbourhoods.

When: Tuesday, June 25, 2024.

Time: 12:00 to 1:00 PM.

Presenters:

  • Bruce Blackwell, BSF’84 and MSF’89, RPF, RPBio, principal of BA Blackwell and Associates; and
  • Joe McLeod, BSF’01, ISA Certified Arborist, manager of urban forestry, City of Vancouver.

Dr. Richard Hamelin, professor and department head of Forest and Conservation Sciences, Faculty of Forestry, UBC, is the webinar moderator.
