Description
Changing environmental conditions have led urban planners, engineers, and policy makers to consider landscape-based applications as part of a larger strategy for addressing social needs. Plants are now being valued for more than their aesthetics are this is placing horticulturists in positions where our contribution to the decision-making process is greater than ever before. The reorganization and concentration of green space is shifting in an era where policy and the environment are altering the North American landscape. This lecture - Trading Turf for Trees – will examine these changes and explore the green industry’s position to affect a positive influence.
