Urban Harvest

By studying these traits, propagated trees would then be planted in those urban environments ensuring a greater percentage of tree longevity in these areas.

Designing a Cycle of Tree Longevity for Urban Areas in the D.C. region.  This project assessed the impacts of climate change on the tree populations within the Virginia/D.C. area.

Research is focused on preserving specific tree species through seed collection within the urban core and then further genotype research at the Casey Tree Farms, located a short distance away in Virginia.
