This presentation discusses the numerous benefits of setting tree cover canopy goals. Ground-level tree planting is relatively straightforward, but more tree planting opportunities exist on rooftops and other elevated structures, which comprise a significant percentage of urban impervious surface. The functionality of these rooftop oases can be dramatically increased when complimented with large maturing trees. However, growing and anchoring trees on elevated structures present many challenges, such as ensuring wind stability, managing weight and minimizing risk from multi-story branch drop. This presentation defines, explores, discusses, and addresses these challenges and increases your knowledge of horticultural systems specialized for high-elevation urban trees.
