TREES FOR TOMORROW: Protecting Las Vegas' urban forest
Show Notes

Las Vegas is the fastest warming city in the United States and as temperatures rise, the city’s urban forest of plants and trees will need to weather hotter, drier conditions. Doug Bennett, Conservation Manager for the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), discusses how we can protect our tree canopy and plan for tree succession to help protect the valley’s urban forest, which is essential to helping reduce urban heat island impacts. Hear more on the Water Smarts Podcast, “Trees for Tomorrow—Protecting Las Vegas’ urban forest.”
