    The State of the Science and Practice of Using Urban Trees as a Stormwater Control Measure


    Foresters have been studying and growing urban trees for centuries, and stormwater professionals have been studying stormwater control measures for decades. But combining the two: using trees as a Stormwater Control Measure, is in its infancy. To our knowledge, Minnesota is one of the first states, if not the first, to add a chapter on trees into its stormwater manual, as well as add the stormwater benefits of tree/soil systems to its stormwater crediting calculator, including evapotranspiration, interception, and soil storage.

     Come hear:

    (1)    how Minnesota incorporated trees into its stormwater manual and calculator in 2013-2014, providing a crediting tool to incentivize the proper planting of trees

    (2)    see new case studies that use trees for stormwater benefits

    (3)    hear results from the latest research quantifying stormwater quantity (canopy interception, soil storage, and evapotranspiration) and quality benefits provided by tree/soil systems.
