Welcome to Stormwater “Roots”! In this new, multi-part series, we will be looking at a series of tree-BMPs and how local governments can use these practices to meet their pollution reduction and canopy goals.
Sally Claggett, USFS
Julie Mawhorter, USFS
Diane Beyer, City of Fredericksburg
In part three of Stormwater “Roots”, we are getting into the details of the different tree BMPs that you can use for Chesapeake Bay TMDL credit: Tree Canopy Expansion, Forest Planting and Riparian Buffer Plantings. Julie and Sally will walk you through the differences between each practice and help identify opportunities for fitting these BMPs into your communities stormwater program. Then, Diane will discuss what the City of Fredericksburg is doing to better integrate their urban forestry efforts with their stormwater program, and how they are identifying opportunities to expand canopy in their city!
