Trees in coastal and island ecosystems in many parts of the world face risk from tropical cyclones, also known as typhoons or hurricanes. Allyson Salisbury and her team conducted a systematic multi-language literature review of research on factors that influence tree damage by tropical cyclones in urban environments and compared our findings to research conducted in nonurban settings. During screening, they kept papers that collected ground-based observations of tree damage within one year of a tropical cyclone and analyzed at least one factor that could affect the susceptibility of trees to tropical cyclone wind damage (e.g., height). In the associated presentation, the team shares their observations of the most commonly studied types of damage and predictors of damage as well as factors in need of additional research. They also highlight common patterns observed among the studies, topics where there is disagreement in the literature, and ways our results can inform urban forest management plans for hurricane-prone communities.

Watch the presentation before taking this CEU quiz.
