Landscape Below Ground IV: International Conference on Tree Root Development in Urban Soils

The Morton Arboretum, Lisle, IL
Monday, October 15 through Wednesday, October 17

Since 1993, the Landscape Below Ground Conference has provided a forum for presentation of the latest research and management practices in all aspects of tree root development in urban soils.

Register before October 8 for an unparalleled opportunity to learn about the latest research and best management practices for establishing and maintaining trees’ roots in challenging urban situations. Top scientists and practitioners from around the world (including many TREE Fund researchers) will present knowledge from a wide range of disciplines, to help managers and policymakers choose, site, plant, and care for healthier, longer-lived trees by focusing on trees’ critical and vulnerable root systems. Speakers will address such topics as the design and constraints of planting trees in urban streetscapes, nursery production, soil selection and amendment, tree root architecture, and tree stability.
