Selecting Tropical and Subtropical Tree Species for Wind Resistance

A team of UF/IFAS scientists studied 10 hurricanes to determine their effect on the urban forest. One of the major goals of this study was to assemble lists of relative wind resistance for different urban tree species to help communities prepare for hurricane seasons. This fact sheet presents the research and methodology that lead to lists of relative wind resistance for tropical and subtropical tree species.

Selecting Coastal Plain Species for Wind Resistance

A team of UF/IFAS scientists studied 10 hurricanes to determine their effect on the urban forest. One of the major goals of this study was to assemble lists of relative wind resistance for different urban tree species to help communities prepare for hurricane seasons. This fact sheet presents the research and methodology that lead to these lists, discusses the results and presents recommendations for selecting and establishing trees for a healthier and more wind-resistant urban forest.

Air Pollution Removal and Temperature Reduction by Gainesville's Urban Forest

The urban forest can help improve air quality by removing pollutants and by reducing air temperature through shading and transpiration, but tree maintenance-related pollution emissions can indirectly contribute to ozone formation and pollutants. This fact sheet presents the results of a study estimating air pollution removal by urban trees in Gainesville, Florida.

Gainesville's Urban Forest Structure and Composition

The urban forest is composed of a mix of native and non-native species introduced by people managing this forest and by residents. Because they usually contain non-native species, many urban forests often have greater species diversity than forests in the surrounding natural landscapes. This fact sheet overviews the composition and structure of the urban forest found in Gainesville, Florida.
