Ethical Tree Care in the Urban Interface Speaker: Damien Carré | 1 CEU Wednesday, October 27, 2021 | 8:30 am PDT | Live Q&A following webinar Online Store: Hotter and longer summers are creating a greater loss of PNW trees. This in turn is cre- ating hotter cities and climates due to canopy loss. This webinar discusses professional and ethical tree care, how to keep our urban canopy preserved in a sustainable way, importance of proactive pruning, retaining what we have, and why planting more is nec- essary to ensure resilience.

Our urban trees are naturally faced with stressed due to their harsh environments. This is exacerbated by severe weather events, drought, and fire that continue to increase around the world and the PNW. Pests and pathogens also continue to expand their rang- es due to the change in climate, as well as accidental importation. These factors threat- en millions of trees in our urban canopy, which carry immense intrinsic and monetary value. This webinar will highlight the importance of our urban canopy, focus on some major pests we are dealing with in the PNW, as well as emerging pest issues around the country that could have an impact here eventually (such as spotted lanternfly!), and get us thinking about how we can use the toolbox of plant healthcare alongside cultural management to do our best as arborists to manage the trees in our communities as we navigate the changing world.
