The Stormwater Benefits of Creating High-Performance Urban Trees

COURSE DESCRIPTION

High-performance urban trees offer many low-impact development (LID) stormwater benefits to our cities.

But what are “high-performance” trees, why should they be considered BMPs, and how are they produced in our urban areas? What are the key things that specifiers, designers, property owners—and, frankly, residents—want to see from an increased investment in LID stormwater management?

Join Forester University and returning speaker Jeremy Bailey for this live, educational webinar to address these questions and more. In this thought-provoking presentation, we will analyze and define the factors that contribute to LID stormwater management using urban trees and the key to realizing these benefits through design.

This course will review the best practices and design techniques that successfully integrate trees into urban stormwater management. It will also provide regional and international case study examples of how high-performance trees are sustainably managing stormwater.

Learning Objectives
By participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Review projects that have successfully integrated LID tree pits, including how they were designed and installed, and examine the quantity reduction and quality improvement results

  • Understand why “Low-Impact Development” is only a buzzword unless sustainable practices are being used and performance is realized

  • Learn how the implementation of sustainable BMPs can become common practice without compromising return-on-investment
