Thank you @Arielle!

No problem :) I’ll be monitoring the chat, so please feel free to send your questions throughout the presentation
lynne bonnett
43:15
how do trees remove air pollutants?
Susan Quincy
44:06
Is there a web site to help people calculate carbon removal of local trees or to see how much is removed from a location?
Mark Mitchell
44:36
Where do we find the report on the effects of urban forests in Hartford?
MRWright
48:36
Where do large retail properties (which include large parking lots) fall in the heat island chart?
Kim Stoner
52:08
How high off the surface are air temperatures measured?
Mark Mitchell
53:17
Would you recommend siting bus stops near trees so that people have access to shade, if there is not a bus shelter?
Doris Johnson
53:18
Are certain trees selected to address the heat island effect
Spencer Kinyon
54:37
Are the maps of tree canopy in CT available on the internet for the public?
Susan Quincy
01:02:54
How do they identify ways to provide public education for the load reduction graphic?
lynne bonnett
01:04:31
when did all of the bank armoring occur in Bridgeport Rooster Riv.?
Patricia Taylor - EHHI
01:04:46
Even conduited, is this watershed area projected to experience a rise of water levels due to climate change?
Rebecca French
01:05:28
Do we know how much damage occurs from flooding from the Rooster River?
Kathleen Schomaker
01:07:47
Can we see the bioswale web address again please?
Patricia Taylor - EHHI
01:08:00
Those bioswales are also capturing plastics before they enter the storm drains!
Susan Peterson

Tanya Dwyer
01:10:15
I love bioswales. I find they need a lot of public education though. NYC residents weren't taught how much garbage goes into the sewers so now when they see the trash piled up in bioswales after a storm that get angry that public funds were spent to create trash filled ugly gardens. They don't see it as a cost saving way to keep trash out of the water system.
Mark Mitchell
01:10:19
How much does it cost to install bioswales?
Peter Ludwig
01:10:22
I like to job creation/lowering recidivism approach, but i don

New Havens alluvial sediments facilitates bioswales.

Peter Ludwig
01:11:43
'but I don't like the possibly unstated assumption that green jobs should only be part time manual labor.
Tanya Dwyer
01:12:44
green infrastructure requires maintenance. a lot of the jobs could remain as maintenance
Susan Peterson
01:13:37
Link to West River Watershed Based Plan (New Haven area) on CT DEEP website: https://portal.ct.gov/DEEP/Water/Watershed-Management/Watershed-Management-Plans-and-Documents#west (Note - Main focus on water quality concerns per federal CWA Sec. 319 Nonpoint Source Pollution Program grant funding source.)

Great presentation, Chris! Very interesting!

CT needs to underground its utility wires! Otherwise we keep replacing the trees that come down in storms getting tangled in the wires. We do the same thing over and over and if we expect a different result, that’s insanity
Peter Ludwig
01:16:05
Environmental Justice require self determination and equal decision making power (which can also be read as community participation and agency). Could you talk more about how this process looked in the planning process in Bridgeport or your observations on this process more broadly?
Andy Danzig
01:16:06
As an urban forester, are you frustrated by the efforts by electric utilities and DOT to cut down so many large trees? Do the threats to trees from climate change and invasive insects/diseases change your approach to which trees you'd now select? How do you balance those diverse issues? e.g. would you recommend moving power/communication lines underground? Thank you for an informative presentation.
Patricia Taylor - EHHI

Here is WHO information on the impact of heat on health - https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/climate-change-heat-and-health#:~:text=Rapid%20rises%20in%20heat%20gain,exhaustion%2C%20heatstroke%2C%20and%20hyperthermia.
Elana Berlin (she/her)
01:19:44
great question. I was thinking the same thing
Kim Stoner
01:22:55
would it be possible to copy the links from the last slide and post them in the chat, so we can use them?
Elana Berlin (she/her)
01:24:25
is a source about the special soil used to avoid damage caused by urban street trees included in the reference list?
Ray Hinchcliffe
01:28:34
Is there any guidance available on a target for trees / tree volume per resident? Should daytime population (including all employees who travel into the city/town) be used, or nighttime population?
Patricia Taylor - EHHI
01:29:59
Here is a spreadsheet of various stormwater management project costs. Bioswales in this spreadsheet may be referred to as "rain gardens"http://greenvalues.cnt.org/national/cost_detail.php

Great talk Chris. Thank you.

I have to jump on another zoom.
