Trees and Stormwater: A Tool for Your Community

Home / Green Infrastructure / Trees and Stormwater: A Tool for Your Community

Using trees in landscape design provides a variety of environmental benefits, particularly when they are used in new and retrofitted stormwater management installations. A new free, interactive, web-based tool developed by the Ohio Kentucky Indiana Regional Council of Governments and the U.S. Forest Service is available to help you maximize the value of trees in stormwater management.

National experts in green infrastructure design introduced this tool during a webinar on December 14 that was co-sponsored by the Water Environment Federation, National Municipal Stormwater Alliance, and National Association of Regional Councils.  Watch the webinar below to see how this new tool can enable strategic placement of trees to improve stormwater management.

After you’ve watched the webinar, go to The site is organized so that you can both learn about using trees in stormwater management, and make the case for doing just that in your own community. A video guide on how to use the site is available here.
