2:00 PMHudson River Estuary CLU Webinar: Urban Tree Canopy Trends & Strategies
Contact  Ingrid Haeckel, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
ingrid.haeckel@dec.ny.gov
Location  Online / Virtual

Upcoming Webinar:
Seeing the City for the Trees: 
Urban Tree Canopy Trends and Local Strategies

Register via Webex for Thursday, April 28, 2022, 2:00-3:30 p.m.

The urban tree canopy encompasses trees found in the forests, yards, and along streets of cities, towns, and villages. These trees provide critical environmental and social benefits, contributing to resilient watersheds, improved water quality, carbon sequestration, reduced heat islands, and enhanced quality of life. This webinar will present why we should care about the urban tree canopy and lessons learned from a forest and tree canopy inventory conducted across Westchester County. Dr. Andrew Reinmann will share results and applications from the study including spatial and temporal trends in canopy cover and local strategies to maximize the efficacy and benefits of tree planting efforts.

The webinar will also introduce the Planting Westchester initiative, which aims to empower residents to promote and address climate solutions, the restoration of natural resources, and food security through growing and maintaining trees and other plants. Millie Magraw will discuss how the program will use the urban tree canopy inventory to inform where new plantings should be targeted and to educate and engage municipalities in this work.

Speakers:
Dr. Andrew Reinmann, Assistant Professor, CUNY Advanced Science Research Center and Hunter College
Millie Magraw, Water Quality & Planning Program Coordinator, Westchester County Dept. of Planning

About the Conservation and Land Use Webinar Series:

The Hudson River Estuary Conservation and Land Use Webinar Series was developed to provide a foundation in conservation and land use planning for members of Hudson Valley conservation advisory councils and boards. In addition, environmental commissions, members of planning and zoning boards, elected officials, and interested citizens may find these programs of interest. Webinars provide background about regional biodiversity, conservation principles, best planning practices, and tools to identify and conserve important habitat and water resources.

Webinar attendees will receive an email from Webex confirming attendance, which may submitted locally for municipal planning or zoning board training credit. An archive of past webinars is available at https://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/120539.html.

 Comment Deadline for CP-33
https://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/8912.html
Contact  Margaret LaFarr
air.regs@dec.ny.gov

CP-33 was intended as interim direction until the Fine Particulate Matter (PM2.5) National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) were fully implemented. New York adopted its latest PM2.5 State Implementation Plans on June 27, 2013 and November 28, 2016 rendering CP-33 obsolete. Rescission of CP-33 ensures Department staff and applicants properly refer to enacted rules in their assessments of PM2.5 as opposed to the outdated interim direction.

The policy from the public website will be removed thirty (30) days following this notice.

Written comments on the policy rescission may be submitted until 5 p.m. on April 29, 2022. For more information on CP-33 please contact:
