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.
