The effects of climate change are being felt around the world. Here in northeastern North America, the beloved trees of our forests, communities, and home landscapes are not immune: drought, heat waves, extreme weather events, and encroachment of invasive species are all having a significant impact on the health of trees and forest ecosystems. This has created numerous challenges for the people charged with their care and protection. In this episode of Verdant Views, join host Kevin Moss and his guests Daniel Weitoish, Lead Arborist, and Zaidee Powers-Rosales, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Specialist, for a discussion of how the climate crisis is impacting trees managed by Cornell Botanic Gardens – and what is being done about it.
Verdant Views is a monthly webinar series, hosted by Kevin Moss of Cornell Botanic Gardens. Each episode focuses on a different topic related to plants, gardens, conservation, and the vital connections between plants and peoples around the world.
