MON-A09 - Trees, Stormwater, and Suspended Pavements: Research and Reality

Monday, October 22
8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
Location: 114


Trees and soils are key components in urban stormwater management, with suspended paving systems proving to be a best practice toward increasing their vitality in these challenging environments. We will address the stormwater mitigation capacity of trees and use case studies to support their value as a resource.
