Trees in Towns II

  • Published: 18 February 2008
  • Site: Planning, building and the environment


The Trees in Towns II report assesses the effectiveness of tree management in urban areas in England. It identifies changes since earlier surveys, including Trees in Towns published in 1993. The executive summary of the report includes information on the quality and quantity of trees; local authority resources and practices in managing urban trees; and the recruitment and skills of local authority tree managers.

The report and wealth of data behind it will be valuable to those engaged in establishing policies and setting appropriate levels of resource to plan, develop, and manage robust urban tree populations.

The executive summary on its own can be downloaded below. It is also available to purchase in hard copy, complete with a CD containing the full report, 12 case studies of good or innovative practice and a mapping tool with tree survey data.

The findings and recommendations in this report are those of the consultant authors and do not necessarily represent the views or proposed policies of Communities and Local Government.
