With a disaster taking out more than 50% of a region's tree canopy in just over an hour of time, how have other communities tackled the problem and what could recovery look like here? We'll look at what was done in Galveston, Texas, in Canada, and catch up with those who will be working on reforestation in Cedar Rapids.
Panelists include: Shannon Ramsey, Trees Forever; Priscilla Files, executive director of Releaf Galveston; Julie Guimond, Urban Forestry Lead, Calgary Parks; Jeff Speck, urban designer and city planner. Moderator: Erin Jordan, The Gazette.
