When I visited New York City for the first time I remember thinking how much I missed green spaces and trees. Everywhere you looked, with the exception of Central Park, seemed to be void of anything green. Just concrete, asphalt and brick…It made me appreciate the open spaces and green that abounds (in comparison) in Southern California. How do people live without trees???
Well, I must have missed the forest for the trees since NYC was recently named as one of the 10 Best Cities for Urban Forests among 50 of the most populous cities by American Forests. Urban trees provide many benefits to the community which is what we will be discussing on the 6/4 #treechat.
Join @CoronaTools and our guest host, GIE Media's Nursery Management, @NurseryMag for a great Q&A discussion on urban trees. The live chat begins 6/4/13 at 11AM PST via Twitter, where we come together with industry experts and fellow tree tweeps each week to discuss all things related to trees and tree care, since 2010!
Some of the main discussion points that will be covered during the live chat include;
Tree Selection – selecting the right tree for the right spot that will flourish in harsh urban settings
Planting in Urban Settings – helping a tree thrive in a difficult urban setting poses real challenges and begins with proper planting
Urban Tree Care – understanding proper tree care techniques that will help the tree survive in the urban setting
We’ll also have time at the end of the discussion for questions with our expert at Nursery Manangement as well as your questions during the live event are always encouraged . If you would like to submit a question before the chat, please leave it in the comments below or tweet it to @Coronatools prior the live chat.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about urban trees in your community and connect with those out there improving our public spaces, one urban tree at a time. We hope you will join us however if you do miss the chat, you can still access the #treechat Storify 24/7 that will be posted following the chat. The transcript includes all the information and links shared during the discussion.
Come share with us on this great topic and look forward to sharing with you on the live chat!
