Roots, Trees, and Soil in the Urban Environment

APA Nevada Chapter
Las Vegas, NV

This workshop considers tree health and the built urban environment here in the desert southwest. Healthy soil and other essential requirements are critical to the success of trees, but are often missing in the design concepts of the urban landscapes. This workshop is for landscape architects, urban foresters, engineers and planners who are designing, specifying, installing and managing trees in the built environment.

This workshop will discuss basic soil science and tree biology and their relationship to healthy trees in the urban environment. The one day workshop has lectures from three Nevada soil scientists, with James Urban as the lead, who expertly ties this critical lecture to improved landscapes in our hot, dry region. A hands-on portion of the workshop allows participants to view soil knowledge through the senses. This is a one-of-a-kind, must-see workshop.
