Physical Benefits of Trees in Towns

Prof Roland Ennos, University of Hull, is delivering an online talk entitled 'The 'Physical benefits of Urban Trees', as part of Forest Research's Forest Science Seminar series on January 30th.

Urban trees provide many benefits to city environments including:

  • Providing shade and cooling us down
  • Reducing the urban heat island
  • Helping to prevent surface flooding
  • Reducing particulate pollution

However not enough information is known about how great these benefits are. This talk will give an insight into the experimental work already undertaken quantifying the physical importance of trees and the need for future research.Register NowThese seminars are open to the public, and places may be booked by contacting Evelyn Hall at Forest Research.The seminar will also be available to as a webinar.
