Arbor Day Webinar Series: Rural Road Resilient Right-of-Ways

Date and Time:

May 28, 2020 - 10:00am to 11:00am

Rural roadside vegetation shapes our towns, shades our backroads, livens our landscapes, and grows character in our front yards. Management of town roadside is largely at the discretion of a few individuals in each town; as such, it’s no surprise that towns handle their municipal right-of-ways differently from each other. Learn about the elements of a backroad that towns value and manage, the processes that make roadside vegetation management cooperative, and the partners you need to engage to plan thoughtfully for resilient roadside trees.

Presenter: Joanne Garton, Technical Assistance Coordinator, VT Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation
