Willow Oak with Changing Fall Colors
New research from North Carolina State University (and supported by the Southeast Climate Science Center) finds that urban warming reduces growth and photosynthesis in city trees. The researchers found that insect pests are part of the problem, but that heat itself plays a more significant role.
