November 20, 2014 NOVA Urban Forestry Roundtable

LOCATION:  Camp Cabin #5

Prince William Forest National Park

18100 Park Headquarters Road

Triangle VA  22172

AGENDA:  "Combating Climate Change Effects on Urban Forests with Landscape Diversity"

Climate change will stress our existing urban forests through new weather patterns, changes in pest and disease distributions and other unforeseen issues. Landscape diversity can combat these unknown changes in several ways. 

By increasing the diversity of the urban forest we increase the odds that some of the trees and other plants will survive in the future climate.  Plant diversity also leads to pest predator diversity, creating allies to deal with possible future pest outbreaks.
