Trees, Woodlands, Lawns and Right-of-Ways: Best Practices for Biodiversity

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Many species of birds, bees, and other pollinators face a precarious future in our urbanizing landscapes. Biodiversity is threatened at local to regional scales by habitat degradation. But there is some hopeful news: homeowners, individuals, organizations, and corporations that influence perceptions and decisions around land management from the neighborhood, municipal, or larger levels can change the current trajectory of biodiversity loss in residential ecosystems! At this special TAG recommended event, learn easy and no-cost actions that can result in more functional habitats around us; current findings on the biodiversity dynamics of local woodlands, and best practices in care and stewardship that can improve ecological processes and reduce risk of tick-borne illnesses; and, industry best practices in Integrated Vegetation Management designed to protect biodiversity along utility rights-of-way (electric, pipeline, roadway and railway).
