    Trees and Management: Advances in Research


    In the coming decades, arboriculture and urban forestry will have to face many challenges as populations increase and demographics change, natural resources are strained, environmental degradation persists, climate continues to change, and globalization increases. At the international level, urban green areas are increasingly being perceived as vital spaces for the development of important ecological, social and economic functions. Therefore, there is a strong need for research in all of the areas addressed in this article if the benefits brought by trees are to be maximized. The presentation will review the recent advancement in tree management in the European scenario.


    Francesco Ferrini, Ph.D., Professor of Arboriculture, University of Florence, Department of Horticulture, Sesto Fiorentino, Florence, Italy

    Francesco Ferrini is a professor of arboriculture in the Department of Plant, Soil, and Environmental Science at the University of Florence. He has published more than 190 scientific and technical papers in Italian and in English. Dr. Ferrini’s research interests include the impact of plant selection and nursery production practices on root regeneration and tree growth; physiological and growth aspects of different species after planting in the urban environment; effect of water stress on growth performance of newly planted trees and its effect on fungal infection; best management practices in container nurseries to reduce water use; and use of substrates to improve growth performances of ornamental species. He was the recipient of the ISA's L.C. Chadwick Award for Arboricultural Research in 2010.
