An i-Tree Eco survey was undertaken in summer 2013 to value a number of ecosystem services provided by Glasgow’s trees.
The ecosystem services valued were: carbon capture, rainwater interception and the removal of air pollution. The socio-cultural value of the trees was also determined.
This study demonstrates the value that the urban forest provides to all who live or work in, or whom visit Glasgow.
This work was funded by Glasgow City Council and Forestry Commission Scotland and was carried out by Forest Research.
Glasgow has a high density of trees compared to cities in England, but lower than in neighbouring Edinburgh.
Glasgow has a high proportion of large trees (60cm+); a lack of medium sized trees puts this at risk in the future.
