Tree pits to help mitigate runoff in dense urban areas

Tree pits are attractive stormwater control measures (SCMs) for implementation in dense urban areas because of their small footprint, their potentially low cost and the co-benefits they may bring through improved street tree growth…

Water balance and tree water use dynamics in remnant urban reserves

Highlights Enough water to the sites despite urban surroundings and different water regimes. Groundwater contributes 30–40% of the total transpiration during the driest periods. Transpiration is 3–16% of total daily transpiration during night-time heat stress. Abstract During the expansion of urban areas, small natural reserves have often been left intact within the built environment as central …
