TREE Fund webinars bring you the latest in tree research, directly from the scientists themselves.
TREE Fund’s one-hour webinars are free and offer 1.0 CEU (only for live broadcast) from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), the Society of American Foresters (SAF), the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) and sometimes the Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System (LACES). See webinar descriptions for specifics. Space is limited and pre-registration is highly recommended; in doing so, you’ll receive a reminder email the day before the broadcast.
Many thanks to our webinar host Alabama Cooperative Extension System.
Registration will open approximately one month before the program date.
LiDAR based urban tree inventory permits a better evaluation of tree services: an example from Montréal Canada
Tuesday, May 11, 2021, at 12 p.m. Central (60 min.)
Dan Kneeshaw, PhD, University of Quebec, Montreal
Current tree inventories are often based primarily on public trees while private trees are not captured. LiDAR technology permits a complete evaluation of all trees in a city; quickly quantifying tree position, tree height and crown volume and area. Our work showed that simple rules of thumb such as the number of private trees is equivalent to the number of public trees is not a valid generalization as the ratio varies greatly by neighbourhood. We also showed a stronger relationship between noise levels in the city of Montréal and tree characteristics than with canopy cover or NDVi. LiDAR offers great potential for evaluating many tree related services in the urban forest.
