Over the past five years, urban growth and increasing temperatures has highlighted the importance of high quality urban green space. Not surprisingly, green space failure becomes more evident when we select the wrong species and/or good management practices have not been undertaken.
Our research has discovered that organisations often focus on planting successes and overlook their failures, which can come at a considerable economic and social cost for our cities. By not tracking these failures and understanding them better, we stand to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.
In this webinar, we will share some of the research we have undertaken to unpack the success and failure data collected by the Which Plant Where project. We will present current data collection practices, and highlight how urban forest inventories can inform species growth and failure rates.
We will conclude with recommendations for standardising data collection for better management and planning of our urban green spaces.
