Description: Instructor: David Meshoulam & Raquel Jimenez Celsi

Trees play an important role in building healthy and resilient communities. Yet, depending on where they live, not all residents receive the same benefits of trees. Speak for the Trees partnered with Boston University's Graduate Program in Urban Biogeoscience and Environmental Health (URBAN) to create an interactive map that explores the relationships between people, place, and tree canopy coverage in Boston. In this talk David Meshoulam, PhD, Executive Director of Speak for the Trees, and Raquel Jimenez, graduate student in the URBAN program, will discuss their partnership and will share the results of their Tree Equity map and how it informs the work of the organization.
