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.
* 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.
