Our urban forests are in severe decline. Climate change, pests, diseases, and development pressures threaten the urban canopy's ecosystem and cultural value. This panel discusses a research-based urban forest master plan for Cambridge, Massachusetts, that joins ecological planning, progressive policy, and cutting-edge practices to build a resilient and equitable future.

Please complete a brief evaluation of this Online Learning presentation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Define the value of the urban forest in terms the public understands and assess the future risks of urban canopy decline.
  • Discuss the challenges of developing research-driven findings and making evidence-based decisions on a limited budget and within a constrained timeframe.
  • Explore the different tools available to reverse canopy loss, including changing practices, educating the public, and writing good policy and regulation.
  • Learn how to structure the right team — bridging science, policy, and design so that you can communicate clearly to public officials, engineers, and the public.
