Urban Forest Research Presentation

January 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The City is updating its 2010 Street Tree Plan. Scoping for the plan begins this spring and the planning process will begin in July 2020.

The City’s Climate Action and Resiliency Plan recognizes the importance of trees:

  • Trees sequester carbon by breathing in CO2 and storing the carbon as plant material.
  • Trees not only help settle airborne particles during wildfire smoke events, but also remove carbon from the atmosphere and reduce heat impacts.

The Climate Plan calls for the continued development of urban forest and update Master Street Tree Plan. CASA is hosting Kian Kafaie as our Brown University winter intern who will be researching issues related to the Urban Forest and present ideas for further development in the new Urban Forest Plan. Please join us to hear about Kian’s findings on Wednesday, January 15th at 6 p.m. in the Stafford Room at the Alameda Free Library. Light refreshments will be served and there will be an opportunity for questions and discussion.
