Tree Filter Systems and Planters for Stormwater Management
Engineered drainage systems and tree health don't have to be diametrically opposed to one another. This webinar will share examples of how to integrate landscape aesthetics with hydraulic performance.
Time & Location
Jun 18, 2020, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
About the Event
This presentation will focus on the integration of plant material with stormwater management systems in providing volume control, pollutant reduction, and harvesting/reuse within the urban landscape to include sidewalks, plazas, and parking lots. The theme will be configuration, sizing, and installation of low maintenance, sustainable systems that meld with the built-up environment. Emphasis will be placed on how these engineered systems can be designed to promote healthier and more vigorous growth and maturity of trees and shrubs versus conventional tree pits, bioretention cells, and rain gardens.
At the end of this program, participants will know:
• How engineered plant systems can provide multiple stormwater management benefits as well as aesthetic appeal
• How these systems can seamlessly integrate with the built-up environment in both new development and redevelopment
This program is being offered at no cost thanks to a collaborative effort between ASLA Connecticut and Storm Tree. Registered participants will receive a link to attend the webinar. Storm Tree will record this session and make it available through the chapter website for future viewing.
