Making Urban Forests Equitable: Evidence and Strategies for Community Engagement

Date: May 26, 2021
Location: Webinar (online), , NC, UNITED STATES
Organizer: NC Urban Forest Council
Description: Presenter: Christine Carmichael, Ph.D.
Creating more "just" urban forests is not as simple as planting trees in low canopy neighborhoods. This work will entail sustained and cohesive efforts among several sectors to engage equitably with low canopy communities to achieve mutual urban forestry goals. Dr. Carmichael conducted research in Detroit, Michigan from 2014 to 2017 to understand why residents in predominantly Black neighborhoods submitted "no-tree requests" when offered a free street tree by a non-profit organization. This presentation will describe specific lessons from this research in Detroit, as well as from a well-established body of environmental justice research, that can be applied to efforts to engage more diverse people in equitably restoring and sustaining urban forests.
This webinar will be interactive and provide tools and resources for participants to take with them to apply in their future work!
