Urban forest is a huge issue for all of us now because:

Man enjoying the urban forest* (click to enlarge)

a) most of us now live in cities 

b) cities are hotter than the surrounding countryside (Urban Heat Island Effect)

c) things are going to get worse not better (climate change)

d) tree canopy is the recognised best way to cool a city

In addition to that, the list of "ancillary" benefits of urban trees continues to grow. It's now almost a case of what can't they do?!

It looks like climate change is happening faster than we thought. That means we need to act faster than we thought.

Thanks for your help.
