You can now view the video recordings from The Great Northern’s Climate Solutions Series, a collection of events engaging diverse perspectives on climate solutions presented Jan 27-29, 2023, including Green Minneapolis’ session Combating Climate Change with Urban Forests: How Trees Can Save Our Cities.
Panelists discuss why urban tree canopy needs to be viewed as critical urban infrastructure—just like transit systems and utilities—and invested in accordingly. Understand factors causing the decline of the Twin Cities urban tree canopy, and learn about exciting initiatives under way in the Twin Cities and across the country to expand urban tree canopy. With panelists Leslie Brandt (U.S. Forest Service), Tee McClenty (MN350), Rachel Holmes (The Nature Conservancy), and Jeremy Barrick (The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board). Facilitated by Green Minneapolis’ David Wilson.
