Description

This study is aimed at understanding the influence of afforestation on water use in a built environment where water resources are limiting. This will be achieved by quantifying daily and seasonal transpiration rates in dominant landscape trees occurring within urban reaches of the Heber Valley. The primary objectives of this study are to: 1) Determine if transpiration varies on a species-specific basis or as a function of adaptation to local growing conditions. 2) Identify any variation in water use between functionally distinct gymnosperm and angiosperm species. And 3) Identify potential impacts on regional water resources as a function of landscape development and accompanying planting decisions.
