Tree Species Selection for Green Infrastructure

The Trees and Design Action Group Trust (TDAG) have produced the Tree Species Selection for Green Infrastructure: A Guide for Specifiers which is written for anyone with an interest in specifying trees for green infrastructure. This is likely to include: arboriculturists; architects; civil and structural engineers; designers; landscape architects; landscape contractors; non-profit organisations; planners and tree officers.

Tree Species Selection for Green Infrastructure

The aim of this guide is to enable you to select appropriate trees for your planting scheme. By doing so, you will enhance the benefits bestowed on our communities by trees, help enrich our shared landscape and create a more sustainable urban forest for future generations. A series of chapters provide a commentary on the interpretation of this guide and tree species selection for green infrastructure. Specific information on over 280 trees is included in the Tree Profiles and a Tree Selector tool helps you identify candidate trees by a range of criteria.
