    Intelligent Tree Data Validation

    This page describes the development of an integlligent validation system for crowd-sourced urban tree data. Rationale A shortage of easy-to-use, reliable data about trees in towns and cities is preventing a knowledge-based approach to optimising benefits from trees and reducing conflicts between local authorities, tree contractors, and members of the public. Cuts to...

    COMMUNITREE: Connecting tree databases to the public, improving urban tree data for business, government and research

    Trees are fundamental components of our urban environment: they make cities more pleasant to live in, keep them cool in summer, reduce flooding, clean the air, provide homes for wildlife, and are a living connection to the past. Trees can also be a source of conflict between local authorities and...

    Understanding the role of urban tree management on ecosystem services

    Urban forests provide ecosystem services that contribute to human health, liveability and sustainability. The management of trees influences the delivery of these ecosystem services and thus helps determine the total benefit provided by an urban forest. This Research Note summarises two Research Reports that assessed the delivery of regulating ecosystem services by 30 tree species […]
