The Trees and Design Action Group have published Trees in Hard Landscapes: A Guide for Delivery. It explores the practical challenges and solutions for integrating trees in 21st century streets, civic spaces and surface car parks, detailing the process, design and technical options.
To produce this new guide, TDAG joined forces with the Insitute of Chartered Foresters, among other steering group members, including the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT), and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), 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 environment 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 publication is free to download, and can be accessed via the link below. Alternatively, contact Sue James for more information.
