This two part event, consisted of a lecture and following workshop. Dr David Nowak gave the lecture, 5 Things You Need to Know about Urban Forests, in which he gave an overview of the environmental services provided by urban forests in cities.
Following the lecture, the attendees had the opportunity to assess the ecosystem services provided by Dublin’s urban forest with the i-Tree software. This free, state-of-the-art and peer-reviewed software is being used throughout the world to assess the ecosystem services, environmental impact mitigation and economic value of trees in cities. This event was held in UCD Newstead (see map F2, building 52) with the lecture held in Room F15 from 4-5pm and the workshop in Room F20 from 5-7pm
