The goal of the webinar is to provide an overview of soil management for urban trees. Specific emphasis will be given to soil assessment. The webinar will introduce soil quality, cover how soil quality can be assessed, and discuss how soil quality assessment can be used for urban tree management. The webinar will include findings from research that has been funded by the TREE fund. The webinar will also include examples of how this information may be applied to real world situations for the arborist and urban forester.
