AIA Northern Virginia
Planning for Trees
April 05
12:30-1:30p


At the National Building Museum.   

Using Washington, D.C. as a case study, Maisie Hughes, design and advocacy director at Casey Trees, explains how good design, combined with plans and policies, protect existing trees and create spaces to sustain a healthy urban forest. Designers and engineers are transforming city streets to allow the growth of large trees. These green machines clean polluted runoff, shade streets and sidewalks, absorb carbon dioxide, and beautify neighborhoods.

1.0 HSW LU. Free for Museum members; $10 non-members. Pre-registration required.
