On August 2, 2021, UCSC Professor Karen Holl was the guest on the Cutting Edge to talk about her research that focuses on understanding how local and landscape scale processes affect ecosystem recovery from human disturbance and using this information to restore damaged ecosystems.

Business leaders, politicians, celebrities, and non-profit organizations are calling for the planting of millions, billions, or even trillions of trees to slow climate change. Is that really feasible? Professor Karen Holl will be talking about what we can actually achieve from growing trees and how to improve the outcomes of forest restoration efforts, based on her nearly three decades of research on tropical forest restoration. This UCSC virtual event, Improving Outcomes of Tree Growing and Forest Restoration Efforts, on August 10, 2021  at 5:30 to 7:00 pm is free and open to the public
