The Winter 2020 “Trees” issue of L|P is now available online!

Everywhere is urbanized now. And the need for urban infrastructure seems to be diametrically opposed to what trees and living systems need to flourish. How can we bring these two opposite conditions together, perhaps in a way that they could even reinforce each other? Can we bring some of these qualities into the city, instead of having to leave the city to find them?
We brought together six of the top minds in landscape architecture to talk about the role of trees in an LA’s work, and in our society – read what they, and a forest of other LAs, ecologists, and other tree “experts” contributed in the Winter 2020 issue of LANDSCAPES | PAYSAGES. 
After we released our Winter 2020 (Trees) issue for delivery, we discovered that a key article, “UNE ÎLE, UN PARC ET SON ARBRE”, had a number of important updates that did not make it into the hard-copy issue. Fortunately, we have been able to revise this article in our digital issue – both in the original French version and in the English translation contained in LP+. We apologize to readers and those involved with Park Jean Drapeau for any confusion, and encourage all readers to visit the updated issue, by clicking on the following links.
