Mitigating Climate Change Through Urban Tree Planting

Inspired by our popular best practice tree planting CPD, Mitigating Climate Change Through Urban Tree Planting explores the present and future challenges that our urban conurbations face due to rising global temperatures, and the ways in which we can mitigate this through the strategic implementation of green infrastructure – specifically canopy volume trees. This CPD looks at how we can integrate trees into hard landscape areas to ensure they reach species potential.
  • Challenges faced in our towns and cities.
  • Combatting Heat Stress. Heat island effect and how urban trees can help.
