North Carolina Trees and Storms: Readiness, Response, & Recovery
Mark your calendar for 7 p.m. on June 8 and 17, 2021, for this two-part webinar series. Presented by Dr. Barb Fair, NC State Extension Urban Greening Specialist, the series focuses on preparing trees for storms and recovering after a storm. They are open to the public at no charge. Please plan to attend and spread the word to residents in your county!
North Carolina Trees & Storms: Readiness, Response, & Recovery is a partnership effort between the NC Forest Service’s Urban & Community Forestry Program (U&CF), NC Urban Forest Council, and N.C. Cooperative Extension Service. The partnership involves the development of outreach materials and guidance to North Carolina communities, tree care professionals, and citizens promoting storm ready urban trees and landscapes and following up with safe and effective response and recovery of trees after a storm hits.
This 2-part webinar series for homeowners introduces participants to the concepts of readiness, response, and recovery and how citizens can plan for and mitigate storm damage on their own property.
Part 1 – Readiness: Getting Your Trees Ready for the Storm
June 8, 2021, at 7 p.m.
Part 2 – Response & Recovery: Now that the Storm has Passed,
Plan for the Future
June 17, 2021, at 7 p.m.
Presenter for both webinars: Barb Fair, Ph.D., NC State University
These webinars are offered FREE OF CHARGE.
Readiness: Getting your Trees Ready for the Storm
June 8, 7–8 p.m.
Our first webinar in the series will detail what to do long before the storm hits. We will share tips for proper tree selection and placement. You will learn how to hire an arborist and what to expect when they visit. Experienced arborists typically prune young trees to allow them to better withstand the storm, as well as prune the big trees to minimize damage. Finally, you will learn what makes a particular tree or portion of a tree more prone to failure during the storm and how you can prevent substantial losses to keep your landscape safe and your trees healthy.
Response & Recovery: Now that the Storm has Passed, Plan for the Future
June 17, 7–8 p.m.
In this session you will be guided through a typical clean-up response once the storm has passed. What damage might you encounter? What kind of assistance can you expect from your arborist? We will share insights into what trees can be readily saved and what trees may require removal. Finally, we will help you think about future planting projects, and how to work with your arborist to develop a long-term plan for proper tree management that will keep your landscape healthy and beautiful for years to come, no matter what the storms may bring.
