Event description

Description

Urban green spaces such as gardens, parks and woodlands provide many benefits to people and vital habitats for wildlife. Urban vegetation stores carbon, helping to mitigate climate change, and reduces the likelihood of flooding by storing excess rain water. Trees and green spaces can improve air quality, limit the impact of heatwaves, encourage people to undertake physical activity and reduce depression. However, these benefits are difficult to quantify and compare to other, more easily monetised, uses of land.

We are undertaking the i-Tree Leeds project to survey and value the trees of the city! i-Tree Leeds is part of the Leeds4Trees collaboration between the University of Leeds, the United Bank of Carbon and Leeds City Council.

Join us on the 17th of August to hear more about the project, find out what we've done so far and learn tree surveying techniques. On the day you will be contributing to our survey of trees on the University of Leeds campus but you will learn skills that you can take back to your local park or green space.

There will be two sessions, one from 2 pm - 4 pm for those that can attend in the daytime (sign up here for the afternoon session) and a further session from 6.30 pm - 8.30 pm (sign up on this page for the evening session).
