An ecosystem approach to urban forestry

With Robert Northrop and Michael Andreu

3 Part Lecture Series

This series of lectures – with Q&A and discussion – will lay out the framework for an ecosystem approach to urban forest management planning and implementation. The framework can be used in any city, state or country.

The management and conservation of the urban forest is primarily a social endeavor. The practice of urban forestry is rooted in ecological science. This three-part webinar series will examine how integrated social and bio-physical science is being used during development of strategic urban forest management plans and public policy to sustainably support multiple and diverse outcomes. This ecological approach will be illustrated with practical step by step examples drawn from work with the City Tampa Florida and the Dept. of Conservation which manages a 32,000-hectare natural area system of rare, threatened and endangered habitats within the Tampa, Florida Metropolitan region.
