Tyler Stevenson and other state staff in Ohio have developed a short video to summarize their use of the Urban Forest Strike Team (UFST) to assess tree damage in the Dayton area after tornados struck there in 2019.
The Massachusetts Tree Wardens’ & Foresters’ Association supported both the deployment and the video, using federal grant funds they had for UFST. In addition to this and other deployments, that grant supported training of over 100 UFST task specialists and team leaders, many from Massachusetts and most from New England.
Ohio has produced a good resource to share with others to summarize how UFST assessments can help communities recover after disaster damage to their urban forests.
