Climate projections predict an increase in the intensity and severity of extreme weather events and therefore flooding risk. With largely impermeable surface cover, urban areas are particularly vulnerable. In this webinar we will explore case studies on urban trees and green roofs in relation to their ability to help control flooding in urban areas in the UK. We will hear about the complexities and impact that different land managements around trees can have in changing infiltration capacity.
