Description: It takes 30-40 years for the trees we're planting today to reach a size where they are actually contributing to the quality of lives in urban areas: providing shade, blocking cold winds, increasing property values.  There are a couple of tricks to predicting which trees will be here in 2050 or later. One, what can be planted now that will be excelling in 30-40 years, and Two, what kind of maintenance practices will those trees require to reach those contributory sizes? Join us to speculate about the future of urban forestry in the upper Midwest and bring your crystal balls.

Speakers: Chad Giblin and Gary Johnson, University of Minnesota, Urban Forestry Outreach Research and Extension Lab and Nursery.
