Community Forestry Webinars: Are Your Trees Storm Ready?

by Penn State Extension

Jul 02, 2021

Every year trees are damaged by storms with strong winds or snow and ice loading. Join Community Forestry Webinars: Are Your Trees Storm Ready? and learn how to evaluate your community trees and assess their potential for failure during a storm. Which species have a tendency to fail?  How best can communities prepare their trees for the more frequent summer and winter storms and minimize damage to property? We will answer these questions, and more!

When: Wed., Aug. 18, 2021 (12:00 PM – 1:00 PM ET)

Registration Deadline: August 17, 2021 11:59 PM

The trees that line our streets and roads, shade our yards, beautify our parks and playgrounds, and protect our streams are all part of the community forest that provides a wealth of benefits to each of us. Over the years, the number of trees (or tree cover) in our communities have been declining for various reasons including attack from invasive pests, injury from construction activities or deicing salts, improper tree care practices, unwarranted removals by some and lack of funding for replacement of declining trees. Each month the Community Forestry Webinars will explore topics related to the planting, care, and management of our community trees.
