Public Event | Learn About the Connection Between Trees & Clean Air with Tree Pittsburgh

online

Our friends at Tree Pittsburgh invite you to learn about the connection between trees and air quality and how the Green Heart Project in Louisville, KY is putting trees to the test as a human health intervention.

Their investigation will measure and assess the impact of trees on air quality and noise levels and correlate with health outcomes and measurements taken from over 800 community residents participating in the study.

Presenters will share how the air quality benefits of trees are modeled using the i-Tree program, provide context behind the study, and how it’s being implemented, as well as the details of how tree species and planting locations are selected to maximize health benefits.

Tree Pittsburgh has invited an expert panel from across government, healthcare, and nonprofit organizations to share the details of their ground-breaking research that can help inform our common goals toward achieving a greener, healthier, and more equitable region.  You can register here for the event, which will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Aug. 27.
