Tree Canopy Conference: Preserving Trees in Our Communities

Tuesday, March 10, 2015
Held at: Haverford College, Stokes Hall Auditorium
Registration and payment required.

Why is Tree Canopy So Important? A healthy tree canopy provides important ecosystem services including air pollution removal, storm water runoff reduction, and building energy conservation. Abundant tree canopy provides habitat for wildlife, and also has a positive impact on human mental health and wellbeing, community cohesion, and economic stimuli. In this conference we will look at tree canopy preservation and reduction both nationally and locally, and consider some of the greatest threats communities are facing as they try to preserve canopy cover.
