US Forest Service to Host Webinar on Local Tree Cover Policies

The USDA Forest Service will host a webinar to discuss the importance of local policies in the effort to halt tree cover loss.

The Forest Service will host a free webinar Wednesday, May 13, 2020 from 1:00 – 2:15pm entitled Addressing Loss of Tree Cover in Urban Watersheds: The Importance of Local Codes and Policies. Many State and local jurisdictions have recently been updating their forest conservation laws and targets to stymie the loss of tree cover. Join Karen Cappiella from the Center for Watershed Protection and Lydia Scott from the Chicago Region Trees Initiative as they discuss successful strategies local jurisdictions can utilize to meet their tree cover goals.
