DEALING WITH ROOT-PAVEMENT CONFLICTS IN URBAN-SUBURBAN NEW JERSEY

Project Details

Description

Urban forest management strategies lack a context for evaluating urban canopy growth and service life, and lack criteria to link canopy as infrastructure to other grey infrastructure management cycles. This project provides a conceptual framework to placing an urban context of tree service life in a cost-benefit approach, and suggests how trees-pavement designs can integrate use and value within a stormwater management context. The wind-firmness effort address the issue of a potentially new wind-based disturbance regime in communities not adapted to such new occurrances, as it informs risks of trees to infrastructure, property and human safety, thus municipal tree management.
