Selecting appropriate species for a planting scheme is fundamental to its long-term success and maximising the delivery of ecosystem services. As part of a knowledge exchange project funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Trees & Design Action Group (TDAG), Myerscough College and Lancaster University are collaborating to develop robust guidance on species selection for urban environments.
In order to ensure that we develop guidance that landscape and tree professionals will find valuable, we have put together this short survey to collect information on current practices in tree selection and priorities for future tree selection guidance. Please help us ensure that the project meets the needs of those selecting trees for urban environments by completing the survey. Your feedback is crucial to the success of the project.
This link will take you to the survey, it should only take about five minutes of your time.
In addition to developing some TDAG guidance on tree species selection, we will also be running a series of seminars later in the project. If you would like to be informed of future seminars on tree species selection, please make sure you leave your contact details at the end of the survey. These contact details will only be used to contact you about these seminars and will not be shared with any third party. Alternatively, regular updates on this project will be available via the TDAG research pages.
Many thanks for support, your thoughtful input is greatly appreciated.
