Tree Equity in Boston: What It Is and How to Grow It

Tue December 6, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join us at the Arnold Arboretum to hear our Executive Director speak about Tree Equity.

The City of Boston recently released a new Urban Forest Plan that aims to grow the city’s urban forest equitably. In this talk, David Meshoulam, Executive Director of Speak for the Trees, Boston, will introduce the idea of tree equity and discuss its critical importance in a rapidly changing climate. The organization has been examining how the distribution of trees has been shaped by race, politics, and history, and works to grow the city’s forest as a tool to build resilient communities.

Parking is available on-site at the Weld Hill Research Building. Find directions here. All attendees must be masked while indoors.

This event will also be livestreamed to YouTube. To sign up for the virtual livestream instead, click here.
