The Bartlett Seminars Presents James Urban: Up by Roots – Healthy Soils and Trees in the Built Environment

Trees need healthy soil in sufficient volumes to grow and become the large, long-lived organisms that cool urban environments, absorb and clean rain water, and make cities livable. Many factors must be in balance to sustain a healthy soil, and urban soil is typically deficient. Almost all soils, can be improved to better support plants, when the deficiencies and requirements are clear.  

But healthy soil is not the only requirement.  This lecture will detail the 6 critical requirements for successful trees.  The outline should serve as a checklist for each tree that landscape architects place on their plans.  From critical aspects of tree-purchase specifications to room for mature tree structures, this simple methodology will change the way you design and detail your projects.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one of the most well-respected authorities on urban tree planting.
