Selecting Coastal Plain Species for Wind Resistance

FR174/FOR119 by Mary L. Duryea and Eliana KampfJuly 28, 2021A 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.
