The Trees and Design Action Group (TDAG) has released a consultation draft of its forthcoming guide ‘Trees in Hard Landscapes: A Guide for Delivery’.
Trees in Hard Landscapes: A Guide for Delivery should be of particular interest to highway engineers, public realm professionals and tree specialists. It explores the practical challenges and solutions to integrating trees in 21st century streets, civic spaces and surface car parks, detailing process, design and technical options.
For producing the guide, TDAG joined forces with the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT), the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), and the Institute of Chartered Foresters (ICF), all of which have been active members of the steering group reviewing and advising throughout the development process.
Trees in Hard Landscapes: A Guide for Delivery has also benefited from the input of over 100 built environments professionals and organisations from wide ranging disciplines and sectors who have taken part in interviews, contributed case study materials and/or offered feedback on earlier drafts.
The aim of the consultation is to focus on content; page reference numbers as well as hyperlinks will be finalised after the consultation period, when the final electronic and paper copy will be issued.
