3/10/15Free Northeast Woody/Warm-Season Biomass Consortium Webinar: Can Cover Crops Play a Role in Shrub Willow Establishment for Weed and Nutrient Management, 1:00 -2:00 PM  (EDT/EST). Controlling weed competition is a critical component of shrub willow establishment due to low planting density and initially poor competitive ability. Recommendations formed in the US fifteen years ago stress the need for cultivation and herbicides that leave the soil surface exposed for long periods of time, increasing the risk of soil erosion and nutrient losses. Very little work has been done to investigate the use of cover crops for improving the sustainability of shrub willow establishment. We initiated two trials in September of 2013 to test the effects of fall-seeded cover crops on weed suppression and nutrient availability in shrub willow planted the following spring. In one trial, we tested cereal rye and a brassica cover crop alone and in combination against a conventional field preparation control. In the second trial, we tested three fall-seeded cereal crops along with a conventional preparation control. Cover crop plots received no herbicides and cover crops were managed by rolling with a residue cutter/roller to produce a mulch layer. Fertility treatments were used to manipulate nutrient availability. Weed populations, nutrient availability and willow growth were measured over one growing season. Results from these two trials suggest that cover crops could have a role in improving the sustainability of shrub willow crop establishment, but important factors such as cover crop selection and management methods are important considerations. Lessons learned and suggestions for future research will also be discussed. The presenter is Eric Fabio, Cornell University. To view the webinar visit https://meeting.psu.edu/bioenergy

2/25/15 – One in a series of free Penn State Extension Green Infrastructure webinars, 12:00 - 1:00 PM (EDT/EST). Topic:  Ecosystem Services Provided by Green Infrastructure: Using iTree Hydro. The presenter is Dr. David J. Nowak, Project Leader, Urban Forests, Human Health & Environmental Health, USDA Forest Service. As we continue to change our landscapes, converting fields and forests to buildings, parking lots and lawns, we fragment forests and other productive landscapes and impact our streams, lakes and rivers with polluted stormwater runoff. Learn how Green Infrastructure is helping to conserve viable natural resources and capture, infiltrate and evapotranspire rain where it falls. Green Infrastructure improves both the quality of life and environment in our communities.

The Green Infrastructure Webinar Series explores how green infrastructure can put our communities and our landscapes on the road to sustainability. The first in this series will concentrate on introducing Green Infrastructure and structural systems such as bioswales, green roofs and stormwater management. Beginning in late summer, the webinars will discuss non-structural topics such as open space conservation, green infrastructure elements, natural resource conservation standards, and conflict resolution.

i-Tree Hydro is a standalone application designed to simulate the effects of changes in tree and impervious cover characteristics within a defined watershed on stream flow and water quality. It was designed specifically to handle urban vegetation effects so urban natural resource managers and urban planners can quantify the impacts of changes in tree and impervious cover on local hydrology to aid in management and planning decisions. By understanding the local, tangible ecosystem services that trees provide, i-Tree users can link urban forest management activities with environmental quality and community livability. Whether your interest is a single tree or an entire forest, i-Tree provides baseline data that you can use to demonstrate value and set priorities for more effective decision-making.
