Our goal with this webinar is to educate people about how to make development truly green. We need solar energy, denser and more affordable housing, and also the crucial climate services provided by trees in urban areas and in forests. The science shows that if we cut trees for large-scale solar and for wall-to-wall-density housing, the net result is not green. With some basic requirements to accommodate existing green infrastructure, we can ensure that much-needed development lessens—rather than provokes—climate change.

There will be five main speakers: two about forests, and three about municipal trees, including two scientists and three activists, who will explain how natural climate solutions can work together with the development Massachusetts needs. Sen. Ed Markey will introduce the webinar.

Organized by the Trees as a Public Good Network. JCAN-MA is a co-sponsor.
