Urbanization causes fundamental shifts in the landscape’s water balance, leading to unintended consequences such as Dr Jon Hathaway photoflooding and water quality degradation. For nearly a decade, Dr. Hathaway’s research team at the University of Tennessee has worked to understand the role of trees for mitigating these effects. From tree contributions to rain gardens, to rainfall interception, its clear trees have significant value in urban spaces. In this presentation, Jon will provide a synopsis of what we’ve learned, and discuss his next project that will bring a substantial number of tree-centric stormwater treatment practices to East Knoxville over the next five years.
