Can you help us to map tree canopy cover for urban areas across the UK?
Urban trees provide a multitude of benefits to people and the environment. These ‘ecosystem services’ include storing and sequestering carbon, filtering air pollution, reducing surface water run-off and enhancing the aesthetic of our built environment. Trees for Cities, Brillianto and Forest Research are hosting a citizen science project to map the canopy cover of the UK’s towns and cities. Help us to build this canopy cover map by measuring the canopy cover in your local area.
