Climate change impacts on tree stability are often associated with a higher risk of wind throw due to higher frequency and magnitudes of the extremes of climate. Higher lateral loads due to an increase in maximum wind and rainfall reduce tree anchorage due to a decrease in soil matric suction and consequently the overall strength in trunk-root-soil.
In this presentation, key aspects of tree biomechanics and unsaturated soil behavior will be discussed and highlighted for urban environments.
