Hi everyone, I muted your lines upon entry, so please unmute yourselves if you have a question.

Please change your names in the participant box to your full name so I know who is here. Thanks!

Research sems to be more "forest" oriented rather than street tree oriented, the urban forest is a different breed of cat.
Kirsten Lyons
57:54
I had the same issue as Ryan
Burney Fischer & Stephanie Freeman-Day
58:15
tks, so the emphasis on urban spp diversity seems to be key, yet diversity indices are discussed but not much researched.

There was recently an article in the ISA magazine and Nature about Climate Change Impacts on Urban Trees in cities around the world that focused on growth rates https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-14831-w

^^^ Resource for climate change effects on urban trees for Burney and Stephanie
Houghton Conference Room

Hey everyone - check out the Climate Impacts viewer at: https://adaptationworkbook.org/niacs-browser
Kirsten Lyons
01:05:19
I definitely want to have a do over on step 2
Kirsten Lyons
01:07:23
When I did the homework, I couldn’t tell how to answer the question to rate vulnerability. It was not numeric, it was disagree to strongly agree
Kirsten Lyons
01:10:38
Maybe I just misread it—I was trying to leave for work.
Wendy Sangster, Stephen Van Rhein
01:15:11
yes
Danielle Shannon
01:15:23
Hi Kirsten, you can edit the workbook steps at any time, feel free to jump back to Step 2 to make edits!
Burney Fischer & Stephanie Freeman-Day
01:18:08
longer growing season, so longer mgmt season; lack of cold needed to provide to seeds that need cold to be viable.
Wendy Sangster, Stephen Van Rhein
01:18:19
disease cycles
Kirsten Lyons
01:19:27
In wetland areas we are counting on frozen conditions to do scouting and mapping and possibly some management
Daniel Goldfarb
01:19:35
effect on germination of prairie specieis and others that require the cold stratification; randomness of freezing and non-freezing days had an effect on Kerner Blue butterfly populations in Northern Indiana
Kirsten Lyons
01:20:01
THat’s right we need it frozen to access some areas
Kirsten Lyons
01:22:13
Lake levels here are very high but we don’t know that much about future levels. I just saw a NOAA presentation about that.
Daniel Goldfarb
01:25:11
Lake Michigan fluctated from the lowest, driest period in 2012 at 5 feet below "normal" to now 2018 at the highest level above "normal" - with more water there are no beaches and then no sand is blown towards the dunes (no sand accrettion on dunes and erosion on shorelines) - low levels impacted water intakes to industries and municipalities with more sand in the intakes
john goodfellow
01:26:17
If the landscape requires suplemental water it isn't a sustainable system.
Kirsten Lyons
01:26:21
If I were planting street trees, I would look at NIACS list for species likely to increase in my region
Kirsten Lyons
01:28:31
Lack of snow definitely impacts our recreation opps here
Burney Fischer & Stephanie Freeman-Day
01:29:49
agree with Kris for southern IN. Change from snow to more rain and ice seems a reality.
David Lein
01:30:57
Mediation of compacted urban soils for increased water infiltration. Keep whatever rain we are getting on the greenspaces that are going to be stressed due to changes in precipitation
Burney Fischer & Stephanie Freeman-Day
01:32:12
Better mulching techniques to avoid critters doing girdling and other winter damage.
Kirsten Lyons
01:33:08
We are managing lots of invasive species that have nice juicy seeds—but may need to plant more native species to sustain wildlife as we go
Kirsten Lyons
01:34:23
Oak Wilt
Kirsten Lyons
01:35:25
I’m hearing horror stories from other areas in MI
Daniel Goldfarb
01:35:47
Ticks not present in our area by Lake Michigan but now very prevalent having an impact on people, recreation, percetion of using natural areas
TreePhilly: Andrea McCullough
01:35:59
Burney, I can help with your mulch question. We do A LOT of radical public education about mulch donuts and proper mulch technique with memebrs of the public.
TreePhilly: Andrea McCullough
01:36:13
excuse my spelling everyone!

We are currently in the thick of the EAB invasion wave, are aware of kudzu populations growing, and have now seen our first Asian jumping worms.
David Lein
01:38:40
I have heard that Canada thought they were safe from EAB due to the cold. They were proved wrong and Canada is loosing their Ash tree population
Kirsten Lyons
01:40:03
We are seeing a lot more woodpeckers, especially Pileated, and we think it might be because of EAB. There are always winners, too.
David Lein
01:40:25
Do you think it is due to warmer climates and plant / insects native ranges are creeping north
Kirsten Lyons
01:43:03
The property owners planted a large woodlot of Black Walnut, a species likely to increase so I guess that’ll be around a while
David Lein
01:43:05
Larger palate of plant species to transplant
Wendy Sangster, Stephen Van Rhein
01:44:30
could have more street tree diversity
Wendy Sangster, Stephen Van Rhein
01:45:30
Kansas City is so geographically large that lack of financial resources is always a problem
David Lein
01:45:48
Funding for greenspaces is usually the first budget item to cut. With the onslaught of EAB on budgets and now trying to plan for climate change and requesting money might be challenging to convince organizations to fund

Thanks Burney

Happy Thanksgiving!
Sheela Johnson

Thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Have a great week!
