Urban forests

Urban streets are much enhanced by trees that provide shade, encourage biodiversity and improve the visual appeal. With the appropriate management they are an asset to residential areas, high streets and major transport routes.

Urban designers and engineers are working to assess this vital asset and nurture a thriving future for trees of all shapes and sizes.

October and November sees the leaves change into magical colours of golds, russets and reds and teams of street cleaners work hard to sweep them up.
