This project was conducted to better understand below-ground tree root morphology in gravel-based stormwater retention systems. read more...
Investigating the Stormwater: Quantity and Quality Impacts of Urban Trees
A webinar given by Bill Selbig and Rebecca Dohn on January 8, 2020 discussing current research regarding street tree debris and water quality as well as how Nashville views its urban forest as a stormwater management practice.
Tree Function in Stormwater Biofilters
The Minnesota Stormwater Seminar Series featured trees in bioretention systems as a stormwater runoff mitigation practice. This 2-hour presentation and panel discussion features Jon Hathaway, Research Engineer at University of Tennessee, and some of his stormwater research involving trees.
Trees and Stormwater Audit Tool
This audit tool helps cities to determine how well their ordinances and practices can reduce impervious surfaces and whether they are using all the best tools to manage their urban forests. This tool scores a city and shows where improvements are needed.

More Than Good Looks: How trees influence urban stormwater management in green infrastructure practices
In this webinar, Andrew Tirpak discusses recent research results from studies designed to characterize the health of trees in bioretention practices and the benefits they provide to urban stormwater management. Lyn Rutherford shares observations from managing bioretention and detention ponds in ...
Investigating the Stormwater Quantity and Quality Impacts of Urban Trees
This 2 hour presentation/panel discussion highlights ongoing research projects that will help environmental managers assess the stormwater volume reduction potential of urban trees as well as understand how municipal leaf collection and street cleaning programs can limit the amount of nutrients in ...
Effects of distributed and centralized stormwater best management practices and land cover on urban stream hydrology at the catchment scale
This is a paired watershed research study to compare stormwater management strategy effects, including riparian buffer and tree canopy cover, on urban hydrology.
A Green Infrastructure Guide for Small Cities, Towns and Rural Communities
The purpose of this Guide is to support small cities, towns and rural settlements with the integration of green infrastructure into their communities. Much of the current green infrastructure research and guidance focuses on densely populated urban centres. Smaller and rural settlements are often ... read more...

The Role of Trees in Urban Stormwater Management
Arboriculture deserves additional consideration as a stormwater control measure. The reliable use of trees for stormwater control depends on improved understanding of how and to what extent trees interact with stormwater, and the context-specific consideration of optimal arboricultural practices ...
Review of the Available Literature and Data on the Runoff and Pollutant Removal Capabilities of Urban Trees
The Center for Watershed Protection reviewed a total of 159 publications to evaluate the research questions defined in the scope of this project: 1. What is the effectiveness of urban tree planting on reducing runoff, nutrient and sediment, and 2. How does effectiveness vary by species, over time, ... read more...
