Conducted for the Belfast City Council Resilience Unit, the research aims to optimise the deliverables of an urban tree planting program, looking, not only at the ecological benefits of trees, but at the potential of targeting their ecosystem services towards greater goals of connecting green infrastructures, of reducing environmental deprivation and of designing liveable spaces. The study analyses different urban climatopes or micro-climates in Belfast and proposes probable delivery plans aiming to combine environmental benefits with social and economic attainable targets for Belfast City Council Resilience Unit’s One Million Trees project.
