What does an urban forest really cost? Developing the Tree Budget Tool

Mosaic Insights have developed a tool that allows users to calculate the cost of a successful urban tree over its lifecycle, from production to replacement. The simple-to-use tool uses data from industry stakeholders across Australia to create an economic model of the costs of successfully establishing tree based urban green space. The model takes into account a wide range of factors that affect the cost of urban trees.
