Storm-Resilient Urban Forests: Response Resilience, Are You Prepared to Respond?

Event starts: Wednesday, May 23 at 1:00 pm EDT

Event ends: Wednesday, May 23 at 2:00 pm EDT


Storms occur in both small communities and large metropolitan areas. Planning early and often is good advice to prepare for your initial storm response. A triage approach for debris management takes care of the worst first and productively leads to a timed and planned response to the aftermath of storms. During this webinar, Extension Agents and educators will learn a variety of approaches communities have used to respond to storms and ultimately manage tree damage and tree debris. The speaker will also discuss a variety of actions to incorporate into community storm response before a storm happens.

Speaker: Dr. Richard Hauer - Professor of Urban Forestry, University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point
