Using various software models such as i-Tree , GIVal, and CO2FIX, we measure the structure and composition of the natural capital or green infrastructure that is of interest. Then we calculate the functions (benefits or ecosystem services) that are being delivered and then value those functions in monetary terms.
Valuing our natural capital or green infrastructure in this way brings real benefits in terms of planning and management and Treeconomics can advise on how best to conduct an assessment.
From individual trees to university campuses, hospital grounds, parks, commercial sites or complete local authority areas. Treeconomics provides real information which gives value to trees and green infrastructure beyond the aesthetic.
Please contact us for further details and/or a presentation on the benefits of Treeconomics.
