Assessing Urban Forest Sustainability in a Changing Climate
Dr Kieron Doick, Head of Urban Forest Research Group at Forest Research draws upon international literature and data available from I-Tree studies conducted in the UK to reflect on the status of our urban forests and their sustainability in light of climate change. i-Tree Eco will celebrate its 10th Birthday in the U.K. in 2020. Over this past decade, and through the implementation of i-Tree Eco, a completely new insight has been gained into the composition, structure and health of our urban forests.
This presentation was given at Futurebuild 2020 (London, March 2020) as part of the programme of talks offered at the Urban Forest Pavilion curated by the Trees and Design Action Group (TDAG). For more details see: www.tdag.org.uk/futurebuild2020.html
