Profs & Pints: Understanding Urban Trees
Profs and Pints presents: Understanding Urban Trees, with Jessica Sanders, director of science and policy at Casey Trees and adjunct instructor in forest ecology at the University of Maryland.

Trees are essential part of the fabric of life in Washington DC.  But how well do you know your tall neighbors?

From Thomas Jeffersons creation of the Potomac flats to Michelle Obamas inspiration of the DC Greens urban agriculture program, the citys leaders have sought to help things grow here. The thousands of trees planted here in the 1800s helped make the city a leader in arboriculture, and it continues to boast more green space per capita than most U.S. cities.

Efforts to maintain a lush tree canopy here bump up against environmental stressors associated with an urban setting, however. Some trees succeed and thrive, but others fare much worse and live much shorter lives than they would in different settings. During the last half of the 20th century the tree canopy here dwindled substantially.

Come learn how Washingtons trees rise and fall from Jessica Sanders, a forest ecology expert and director of science and policy for Casey Trees, a nonprofit devoted to restoring our citys tree canopy. Shell discuss efforts to monitor and manage tree life and make the citys tree canopy more resilient. Shell also familiarize you with local tree species, help you make wise choices in planting trees in your yard, and give you tips on where to stand alongside some true wonders of nature or look up at some especially vibrant fall colors. (Advance tickets $12. Doors: $15, save $2 with student ID. Profs and Pints encourages attendance by those under 18 but asks that they be accompanied by adults.)
