Urban Forest Hurricane Recovery

The University of Florida Extension devotes a portion of its website to Urban Forest Hurricane Recovery, which allows visitors to read a publication or view a PowerPoint presentation on the subject of cleaning up trees after a hurricane and preventing future hurricane damage to the urban forest. The first chapter on safety precautions in this presentation cautions that most injuries after natural disasters occur during clean up. In addition to the fourteen chapters that cover everything from "Restoring Trees after a Hurricane" to "Selecting Coastal Plain Species for Wind Resistance" to "Developing an Urban Forest Management Plan for Hurricane-Prone Communities", the website also has other related links on the left-hand side menu. Some of these links include "Disaster Preparedness and Recovery" and "Promoting Turf Recovery Following a Hurricane". Overall, the site is a fine resource for those persons in the field of public health, disaster recovery, and public policy.
