CLEAR 2015 Webinar Series

Roadside Forests: Management Solutions for Storm Resilience, a “Stormwise” Approach

Running Time: 00:59:32


This webinar will highlight the forest stand conditions along roadsides that contribute to the tree issues we encounter during high-intensity wind-storm events. It will also explore how traditional arboriculture and silviculture by themselves have not adequately addressed the management issue. A new approach will be introduced that blends the two scopes of practice and can be applied to protect the roadside forests we all love while growing and maintaining them in a healthier way. The webinar will end with a discussion of all the stakeholder groups that must be involved to operationalize the approach across the landscape.
