We have also completed a number of bespoke projects, involving a range of specialised offerings related to trees and their economic impact. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
Together with Highways England (now National Highways) and Kier, we developed a new i-Tree biodiversity net gain tool and an ecosystem break-even calculator.
Our Consultants assist urban planners and local governments in designing effective urban forestry programmes. For example, assessing the benefits of trees in urban areas, estimating costs and returns on investments, and creating plans for tree planting and maintenance.
We are able to quantify the economic value of ecosystem services provided by trees, such as air purification, carbon sequestration, stormwater management, and improved property values on specific urban design projects. These valuations can help decision makers understand the monetary benefits of maintaining healthy trees.
We perform cost-benefit analyses of different tree-related projects or initiatives. This involves quantifying the costs of tree planting, maintenance, and removal, against the tangible and intangible benefits they provide.
We work with city planners, architects and developers, to integrate trees and green spaces into urban development plans.
This could include guidance on tree species selection, planting techniques, and long-term maintenance strategies.
Our Consultants assist in crafting policies and regulations related to tree preservation, planting requirements, and urban forestry management. This involves collaborating with local governments to ensure effective and sustainable tree management practices.
We help develop community engagement strategies to raise awareness about the importance of trees and involve residents in tree planting and care efforts.
Education programmes can also be designed to inform the public about the economic and environmental benefits of trees.
Given the role of trees in carbon sequestration and climate change mitigation, Treeconomics can help organisations and municipalities design strategies to maximise the carbon offset potential of urban forests.
