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

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 | 1:00 – 2:15pm ET

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 event, Dr. Susannah Lerman
of the USDA Forest Service will share easy and no-cost actions that can result in more
functional habitats around us. Dr. Vince D’Amico from the USDA Forest Service will
introduce 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, Randy Miller from CN Utility Consulting will share
industry best practices in Integrated Vegetation Management designed to protect
biodiversity along utility rights-of-way (electric, pipeline, roadway and railway).
