Over the last several decades, increasing temperatures have had impacts on tree growth, migration, pest pressure, the urban heat island effect. As the earth has warmed, trees – especially those in urban areas – have been under increased stress. In this talk, Faith Appelquist will discuss the impacts of climate change on urban forests and what you can do. Additional topics will include selecting trees to withstand increasing temperatures, native vs exotic, limited biodiversity, and introduced pests.
