    Description

    Vibrant, renowned for its livability and cultural wealth, the city of Berkeley maintains trees as an integral component of the urban infrastructure. Research indicates that healthy trees can mitigate impacts associated with the built environment by reducing stormwater runoff, energy consumption, and air pollutants. Put simply, trees improve urban life, making Berkeley a more enjoyable place to live, work, play, and study, while mitigating the city’s environmental impact. Over the years, Berkeley has invested millions in its municipal forest. The primary question that this study asks is whether the accrued benefits from Berkeley’s municipal forest justify the annual expenditures?
