Incorporating Trees into Urban Rainwater Management Systems

Incorporating Trees into Urban Rainwater Management Systems

Awareness has increased over the last 10 years about how storm water needs to be handled and addressed, shifting the approaches on the engineering side of development. Trees can offer many vital and affordable functions for water management and filtration, something which is beginning to be better understood. In this episode, James Urban, author of “Up by Roots: Healthy Soils and Trees in the Built Environment,” provides his insight into how landscape architects and developers can benefit from incorporating trees into the design, and how arborists and urban foresters can collaborate with engineers to integrate trees into storm water management.
