The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy will host a lecture by David Nowak titled “Why city trees are essential to the well-being of New York residents” from 5:45 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 6 at the Buffalo Museum of Science, 1020 Humboldt Parkway, Buffalo.

Trees provide numerous benefits that are essential to health and well-being of our city communities and families. Due to various changes in the landscape and environment, our city’s forests and their human benefits for quality of life are increasingly at risk. This presentation will illustrate how urban forests in New York and across the nation are changing, the growing need for tree care and replenishment and how together we can establish more sustainable and healthy urban forests for future generations.

David J. Nowak is a senior scientist and team leader with the USDA Forest Service, Northern Research Station in Syracuse. His research investigates urban forest structure, health, and change and its effect on human health and environmental quality. He has authored more than 275 publications and leads teams developing the i-Tree software suite that quantifies the benefits and values from vegetation.

This event is presented by Delaware North. It is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Jessica Juliano at 838-1249 ext. 22 or email Jessica@bfloparks.org.
