Laurel Hartley and Students Collaborating on Long-Term High Line Project

Published: July 14, 2022

A study along the 71-mile High Line Canal in Denver is creating data points on each new tree the project planted, to help understand the impacts of climate change, drought and pests. Co-led by Chrissy Alba, Assistant Research scientist in the Research and Conservation Department at Denver Botanic Gardens, and Associate Biology Professor Laurel Hartley, alongside CU Denver student researchers, the crews are currently making field calls to give the High Line’s new trees their first annual checkups.
