Penn State Extension Community Forestry Management Monthly Webinar Series

Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 12 PM – 1 PM (Eastern Time)

Tree planting efforts have increased in cities across the United States in recent years. However, information on these plantings remains siloed by cities making it challenging to identify national trends or make city-by-city comparisons.

Danica Doroski, Doctoral Candidate with Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies presents this study that consolidates and synthesizes data from municipalities and non-profit organizations across the Northeastern United States. Ms. Doroski's work illuminates patterns in species composition that can inform future plantings and improve tree-planting programs on the local level.
