TREE Fund Webinars

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 hosts Alabama Cooperative Extension System and Utah State University Forestry Extension

Health Benefits of City Trees: Research Evidence & Economic Values

November 19, 2019, at 12:00 p.m. Mountain

Dr. Kathleen Wolf, University of Washington

An ever-growing, international body of research points to many human health and wellness benefits that result from nearby nature experiences. But what about trees? Two recent reviews have explored, first, the studies that focus on the urban forest and health response, and second, on the economics of human health effects. In this webinar Dr. Kathleen Wolf will share the highlights of both reviews.

Dr. Kathleen Wolf is a Research Social Scientist with the College of the Environment at the University of Washington (Seattle). Her research focus is the human dimensions of urban forestry and urban ecosystems, particularly human health. Another interest is the translation of scientific evidence for use in local government policy and planning. View her research at www.naturewithin.info; and the Green Cities: Good Health project at: www.greenhealth.washington.edu
