Webinar: The Salt Dilemma: Growing Better Urban Trees in Northern Climates

February 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Can urban trees and city winter weather protocols peacefully co-exist? Join us for a discussion of the latest research findings related to successfully growing trees under these conditions. Dr. Andrew Millward will walk us through his investigation of the surprising decline and mortality of trees planted using soil cells in a recent urban revitalization project in Toronto. While the research led to salt, there were a number of other factors. The project opened a discussion about changes to the way we design and manage urban trees. Adam Nicklin will offer options to reduce salt damage to trees, and talk about the role landscape architects can play in helping the urban canopy thrive.

Presented by:

James Urban, FASLA, Urban Tree + Soil

Andrew Millward, PhD, Ryerson University
