Research Aims to Protect Infrastructure from Tree Damage During Windstorms

Posted: Nov 15, 2023

Researchers at Colorado State University developed a system for evaluating the risk of critical infrastructure system disruption from tree damage during windstorms. The research findings can potentially to be applied in future risk assessment and mitigation of urban trees before windstorms. Accordingly, stakeholders can make risk-informed decisions in terms of effective prevention and preparation measures to protect these infrastructures and further improve the resilience of the whole community subjected to wind events.
