Working Group of AREA under ISA
UTGL is organizing an AREA Symposium for the ISA conference being held in August in Ft. Worth. In this symposium, we will explore the implications of historic landscape management decisions, urban tree growth, and contemporary planting initiatives and stewardship networks on canopy cover change. Presentations will address canopy cover changes at varying time scales – from the past 10 years and the past 100 years. Our talks will span geographic scales as well, from a single college campus (the University of Pennsylvania), to a single city (Sacramento and New York City), to the canopy cover goals of a regional network (Chesapeake Bay).
The 2016 UTGL annual meeting will also be held at the ISA conference in
Ft. Worth. Stay tuned for more information for both of these events.
