How best to approach street tree species trials?
Climate change and increasing temperatures pose a major challenge for green spaces in our urban landscapes. Developing diversity is important for the palette of trees species available to our growers and practitioners alike, as they seek species that are robust enough to not only survive, but thrive in our cities.
Lab-based research can accelerate our learnings, but field trials in the real world context of street tree plantings can reveal another level of knowledge, particularly for opportunity species.
Which Plant Where and TREENET are developing a Practice Note to illustrate a consistent “How to ….” approach for undertaking street tree species trials.
