Drought Tolerance in Trees – Improving Tree Selection for Challenging Urban Sites
November 30 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Dr. Andrew Hirons
Senior Lecturer in Arboriculture, Myerscough College, U.K.
Looking for trees that can establish and survive in challenging urban environments? Of course you are! In this webinar, Dr. Andrew Hirons will explain how drought tolerance is one of the most important determinants of a tree’s ability to survive in the urban forest. You will gain an understanding of the basic mechanisms of drought tolerance and insight into tree mortality from drought, giving you practical strategies for managing trees in urban spaces. Dr. Hirons will also share his latest research on using specific plant traits to improve tree selection decisions for challenging urban sites.
