Assessing the adaptability of urban tree species to climate change impacts: A case study in Shanghai

Urban forests and trees are affected by potential biotic and abiotic climate change impacts. To enhance urban forest adaptability and resilience to climate change impacts, tree species with high local climate adaptability and robust stress tolerance should be identified and selected…

Tree effects on urban microclimate: Diurnal, seasonal, and climatic temperature differences explained by separating radiation, evapotranspiration, and roughness effects

Increasing urban tree cover is an often proposed mitigation strategy against urban heat as trees are expected to cool cities through evapotranspiration and shade provision…

Using ground penetrating radar to locate and categorise tree roots under urban pavements

Abstract Street trees are commonly associated with pavement cracking and lifting, resulting in costly repair of the pavement and/or removal of the affected tree/s. This study used Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to evaluate the effectiveness of three different prototype permeable pavement designs in reducing pavement damage caused by street tree roots (Melaleuca quinquenervia). Initial tests conducted in a
