Using i-Tree to help combat climate change

COVID-19 update

Join us at the 3rd European i-Tree Conference, which will be held in the beautiful city of Amsterdam. Come and hear David J. Nowak, PhD (i-Tree programme lead), and Dr Cecil Konijnendijk van den Bosch (Professor of Urban Forestry) talk about the importance of urban forests in light of climate change and how i-Tree can be utilised to help secure funding for green infrastructure. Our other speakers will cover, amongst other topics, how i-Tree has been used to promote urban forests globally, and how communities have been engaged in active forest management. On day 2, we will be hosting an i-Tree workshop, which will be followed by a cruise, during which we will be able to see the beautiful canal-side trees of Amsterdam. We look forward to welcoming you!


Presenters: David J. Nowak, PhD, USDA Forest Service, Dr. Cecil C. Konijnendijk van den Bosch, University of British Colombia. More presenters and final programme to be announced soon.
