New tree project guidance now available

Published
Tuesday 17 July

Dr Andrew Hirons is pleased to announce that Tree Selection for Green Infrastructure is now available to download.

This new digital guidance has been developed as part of a NERC sponsored project involving University Centre Myerscough, Lancaster University and Trees & Design Action Group.

The aim of this guide is to enable you to select appropriate trees for your planting scheme. By doing so, you will enhance the benefits bestowed on our communities by trees, help enrich our shared landscape and create a more sustainable urban forest for future generations.

A series of chapters provide a commentary on the interpretation of this guide and tree species selection for green infrastructure. Specific information on over 280 trees, illustrated with over 800 photographs, is included in the Tree Profiles section. A Tree Selector tool also helps you identify candidate trees by a range of criteria.
