In our urban forest, large and mature trees
make the greatest impact on reducing
atmospheric carbon and mitigating climate
change effects. The mature canopy makes our communities livable. See what Philadelphia is doing to encourage people to plant and care for trees and how tree-friendly land uses, such as parks, gardens, and cemeteries contribute to community canopy cover benefits. The conference also highlights select tree species for the future canopy, how plant exploration is adding pest and stress resistant species to our planting options, and what can be done to preserve our valuable veteran trees.
