Tree selection for a sustainable urban forest in future climates

seminars, workshops |

Our changing climate has put a new spotlight on the importance of trees and, as more people want to be part of the solution, it is crucial we understand the role and functionality of trees so they will be there for future generations.

Our next webinar in the Urban Forests series welcomes Henrik Sjöman, Scientific Curator at Gothenburg Botanical Garden, a Senior Researcher at SLU and an Honorary Research Associate at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He specializes in how trees deliver ecosystem services in urban landscapes and the practical applications of this in terms of diversifying the urban treescape. Henrik communicates his research through numerous publications and by lecturing to urban planners, landscape architects, garden designers and tree nurseries throughout the world.

On the 11th of November Henrik was invited by TV4’s Nyhetsmorgon, to talk about trees in our future urban landscapes:
