Its the first tree survey and report of its kind in the UK. While the property valuation methods used are controversial within the arboricultural industry, there is no doubt that this document is a key step forward for tree management in Britain. It may pave the way for proper recognition of the value trees play in our well being, and with it proper funding for tree planting and management. It is therefore well worth a look to anyone who controls spending on trees and landscaping, tree managers and anyone who is interested to know about the economic value of the benefits trees offer.
