Storms happen and the urban forest responds accordingly to steps taken beforehand to create storm-response resilience. Recovery from storms also happens and the success is predictable based on how well a community prepares in advance to respond.
Storms occur in both small communities and large metropolitan areas. Planning early and often is good advice to prepare for your initial storm response. A triage approach for debris management takes care of the worst first and productively leads to a timed and planned response to the aftermath of storms. During this webinar, Extension Agents and educators will learn a variety of approaches communities have used to respond to storms and ultimately manage tree damage and tree debris. The speaker will also discuss a variety of actions to incorporate into community storm response before a storm happens.
