Storm-Resilient Urban Forests: Response Resilience, Are You Prepared to Respond?

Storms occur in both small communities and large metropolitan areas. Planning early and often is good advice to prepare for your initial storm response. A triage approach for debris management takes care of the worst first and productively leads to a timed and planned response to the aftermath of storms. During this webinar, Extension Agents and educators will learn a variety of approaches communities have used to respond to storms and ultimately manage tree damage and tree debris. The speaker will also discuss a variety of actions to incorporate into community storm response before a storm happens.

Speaker: Dr. Richard Hauer - Professor of Urban Forestry, University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
