CTASLA: Trees and Design in the CT Built Environment
CTASLA is pleased to bring James Urban to Connecticut, along with other respected speakers, to share their expertise on street trees with landscape architects, arborists, tree wardens, and other designers and managers of urban tree spaces. With the ongoing debate about utility tree-trimming practices and Right Tree-Right Place guidelines, and as cities respond to global warming, this is a time of increased scrutiny toward streetscapes and renewed passion about our urban forest. What are the key elements of tree space design that enable a specimen to become a long-term success story? What can designers learn about soils, canopies, and nursery stock to improve their specifications? How are cities responding to the challenges facing our urban forests?
These questions and more will be addressed in “Trees and Design in Connecticut’s Built Environment,” a CTASLA continuing education program on Tuesday, June 16 in cooperation with Naugatuck Valley Community College.
