The water quality benefits of forests are widely accepted, yet very few studies have successfully quantified the runoff and pollutant-reducing impacts of trees in the urban landscape. The use of trees for stormwater management is hampered by the uncertainty of how to “credit” trees for runoff and pollutant load reduction in the urban landscape. This webcast will review the available crediting frameworks for using urban tree planting to meet stormwater requirements, such as stormwater management regulations and TMDLs. It will also present a new national crediting system for urban tree planting that can be integrated into state and local TMDL compliance systems.
