After the Storm: Tree Canopy Assessments and Hurricane Response

In October of 2018, Hurricane Michael, became the first category 5 hurricane to make landfall in the continental US since 1992. The storm devastated Florida panhandle and Georgia communities and surrounding areas with strong winds, pounding rain, and an inundating storm surge. The hurricane not only caused loss of life and infrastructure but also major damage to the region’s forests and urban trees.

The Florida Forest Service, Georgia Forestry Commission, and Georgia Tree Council used federal hurricane relief funding to hire PlanIT Geo to measure the damage to the region’s urban forest. In this webinar, Ben Wittman, Geospatial Data Manager at PlanIT Geo, breaks down the findings from that project and how the tree canopy analysis can be used by urban forest managers to focus their recovery efforts after storms. The webinar also includes an in-depth exploration of the storymaps created to educate the public on the results from the urban tree canopy assessment.
