Our Professional Development Partner TDAG would like to invite you to this online seminar on Wednesday 13th December.
You have identified the key issues of why, when, what and how, but all actions, whether in new developments or retrofitting, come with costs.
We know that trees can deliver multiple social, economic and environmental benefits but, while these are quantifiable – such as the saving to health of improving air quality, they rarely offer actual ‘cash’ inputs. So, the costs of planting and ensuring ongoing survival and success are real costs that have to be paid. What are these costs and what methods have been shown to be successful and fair to all in financing them? For adopted street trees we really need a national standard for commuted sums – a question for the meeting is how to develop this? So, overall, what are the actual costs and what methods have been shown to be successful and fair to all in financing them?
