8. The Value of Urban Trees


This session will engage participants in understanding trees as core urban infrastructure, emphasising the various components of the ‘urban forest’ and recognising that different tree species – and trees in different locations – contribute different benefits to urban society. The session will feature in detail the valuation tools i-Tree Eco and CAVAT, and explore how their application can inform natural capital accounts. Participants will also see the findings of the latest research on attitudes to novel payments for urban trees.
