About this book

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.

Key Features:
* Provides up-to-date information on the national urban tree stock and urban tree management by local authorities.

* Identifies and evaluates trends in the urban tree population since the 1992-93 'Trees in Towns' study.

* Delivers datasets collected to enable use with appropriate geo-coding and case referencing.

* Identifies and analyses financial and other resources available to support tree management and other tree activity.

* Introduces evidence-based approaches and models for the management and maintenance of urban trees.

This publication also includes a CD containing the full report, 12 case studies of good or innovative practice, and an essential mapping tool with tree survey data.

"[...] This is a veritable mine of statistics on urban trees. But this takes up only about a third of the book. The rest is concerned with the maintenance and management of urban trees drawing out examples of good practice from around the country, including a large appendix with 12 case studies on a range of subjects such as using green waste, sourcing external funding, and fostering community involvement. So in terms of use for ecologists, this book gives a descriptive base for knowing what is out there."
- Peter Thomas, British Ecological Society Bulletin, August 2013
