Watch It! I’m Growing Here: Inventory, Assessment, and Recommendations of the University of Pennsylvania’s Street Tree Surface Treatments
Date of this Version
Street trees are a multi-beneficial green infrastructure that are under substantial environmental stress, which many take for granted. On the University of Pennsylvania’s campus, the maintenance for these trees grows as more trees are added and cared for, from canopy to surface material choice. Cataloging and assessing Penn’s trees and recommendations for potential surface treatments are provided to determine the most effective and low-maintenance surface material while also not negatively impacting the tree.
