Urban trees have an important role in sustainable communities, providing numerous aesthetic, social, and health benefits. Their importance within urban 'green spaces' has been emphasised by a number of Government reports. This survey was commissioned in 2004 and aims to provide up-to-date information on the national urban tree stock and urban tree management by local authorities in order to inform best practice.
