What different elements go into proper tree species selection for urban environments, including green and gray infrastructure interactions and utility corridors above- and below-ground? With careful planning and site condition considerations, urban planners can ensure the long-term health of a tree and maximize the ecological benefits. Next we’ll explore how planners can capitalize on America’s growing love of their pets. In Pecha Kucha-style, we’ll learn about the roles our four-legged friends play in planning and best practices: placemaking and creatively integrating pets into public spaces, desirable pet amenities and market aptitude toward them, and using your community’s pet friendliness for economic development and marketing.
