It's one thing to plan and design a distinctive urban space. It's another to take steps to help ensure that it matures and thrives for years to come.

Sustainable Urban Greening – Macro to Micro will delve into longevity-minded design from expansive landscapes down to below-ground considerations of roots and more.

Learn how the award-winning Northerly Island Framework Plan unfolded and about special steps to create and maintain diverse ecosystems on the site, gain insights from case studies demonstrating how a systems approach and technological creativity can promote sustainability, and find out about cultural practices critical to long-term success.

Network with landscape architects and contractors, architects, property managers, municipal foresters and more.

A day of fresh ideas. A day of new connections. A day at the Garden.

Sustainable Urban Greening—Macro to Micro is presented by Bartlett Tree Experts and the Chicago Botanic Garden, which share a commitment to research, innovation, preservation and sustainable practices.

The Garden believes the future of life on Earth depends on how people understand, value and protect plants and habitats on which they depend. Bartlett Tree Experts, with its own tree-research laboratory and arboretum, has identified and developed the most effective, environmentally sound plant health care techniques for over a century. Together, Bartlett and the Garden help educate practitioners and consumers about such techniques—and more.
