Tree Canopy Conference
Haverford College, Stokes Hall Auditorium

Why is Tree Canopy so Important?
A healthy tree canopy provides important ecosystem services, including air pollution removal, storm
water runoff reduction, and building energy conservation. Abundant tree canopy provides habitat
for wildlife, and also has a positive impact on mental health and well-being, community cohesion,
and economic stimuli. At this conference, we will look at tree canopy preservation and reduction
both nationally and locally, and consider some of the greatest threats communities are facing as they
try to preserve tree canopy cover.

Featured Speakers include:

o Dr. Jay Townsend, who has done extensive research on the psychological impact of tree canopy
on city dwellers, will speak on trees as stress relievers;

o Dr. Jason Henning, Research Urban Forester, will highlight how to use I-Tree to manage tree
canopy;

o Michele Adams, founder of Meliora Design, and Tavis Dockwiller of Viridian Landscape
Studio will discuss sustainable storm water management techniques; and

o Dr. William Powell, Professor and Director of the Council on Biotechnology in Forestry will
discuss his work to produce a blight resistant American chestnut.
