We have just started a project to quantify the role of trees and shrubs within North Somerset. This will apply i- Tree Eco methodology developed by the U.S. Forestry Service and used in a number of American cities.
The approach is new in the UK and the Trust’s project follows on from a successful project in Torbay. We will differ from this project, as we will work closely with North Somerset’s expanding network of Tree Wardens to collect the data.
The first step is to test the methodology and we have started surveying the first 20 random plots, generated for us by North Somerset Council.
More details to follow. Click here for a link to the Torbay project.
