Trees are a vital connection to nature in the in the urban landscape. In this session, you will learn about what the trees need and how planners can reconcile these needs with the many competing demands for other land uses, and the wishes of the community, decision makers, property owners, and developers.  A synopsis of practical ways to improve designs and planning work will be included. This session leads into the Urban Forest by Design theme of the upcoming Canadian Urban Forest Conference where Dr. Julian Dunster MCIP, RPP will be speaking about advanced tree risk assessment techniques.
