The Urban Forest is Broken: Solutions for a Pending Crisis
This one‐hour session highlights how large soil volumes under pavement for Urban Forests are currently being installed around the world. The integration of these green utilities with uncompacted soils, trees and stormwater into our urban areas substantially improves their design sustainability. These are Urban Forest that fulfills their promise of alleviating some of our most pressing ecological challenges – including air and water quality, climate change, flooding and erosion from daily rainfall events. Research tree projects 7 and 25 years old show the superior performance of suspended pavement with loam soil for these dangers. MARQ2, transit streets in Minneapolis, the 2010 Winter Olympic Village in Vancouver, Canada and Waterfront Toronto case studies will be presented showing Urban Forests at scale.
