Urban Forests & Climate Change

Thursday, September 2, 2021

Climate change is a global phenomenon that is negatively impacting ecosystems around the world. Urban areas, and urban forests specifically, experience these negative impacts especially acutely. While urban forests and trees in cities are vulnerable to the impacts of climate change they are also capable of mitigating climate change and helping to offset its negative impacts. In this talk, Danica Doroski, State Urban Forestry Coordinator for Connecticut will explain how climate change impacts trees and forests within the urban matrix, how these urban trees and forests can in turn help to offset climate change and discuss what this means for the management of Connecticut’ s urban forests and beyond. Danica had been working in urban forestry and related fields for the past 10 years as a horticulturalist at the Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia, PA. Outreach Coordinator for the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. Questions? Email mlivoti@norwalkpl.org
