Webcast description:

Measuring the benefits of trees helps us make the case for growing a strong, healthy urban canopy. Now, new criteria help distinguish sustainable design on natural landscapes—giving green industry professionals a more comprehensive look at the sustainability of natural spaces. Nonprofits and municipalities have used tools like the Sustainable SITES Initiative, a rating system that measures green design elements in natural areas, to certify local projects that deliver high value to the surrounding ecosystem. Using tools like SITES v2 Rating system helps broadcast the impact of sustainable green infrastructure development.
