Urban Forest Systems and Green Stormwater Infrastructure

This resource manual provides a synthesis of the science around how urban trees help mitigate problems associated with stormwater runoff. This resource is designed to provide Urban Foresters and Natural Resource Managers with some helpful urban forest management strategies to maximize stormwater benefits. Several tree crediting tools and case studies are also provided to help governments better account for the stormwater benefits of urban forests as relates to reducing stormwater volume and pollutant loading.
