DescriptionBetween 1997 and 2009 a serious drought affected much of Australia. Whether reasoned or unintentional, water policy decisions closed the tap, turning much of the urban forest’s lifeline into a trickle. Green infrastructure became brown infrastructure, exposing its standing as a low priority relative to other consumptive sources. To share new solutions to water scarcity and urban forest management Greg McPherson, Robert Prince, Nelda Matheny and Larry Costello convened a symposium in conjunction with the 2011 ISA Annual Conference in Sydney, Australia. The articles in this recent special issue of the Arboriculture & Urban Forestry offer “lessons learned” to inform future policy, research, design and management.
