02 Feb How to achieve urban tree canopy targets
The ‘3-30-300 rule’ is an evidence-based recommendation which states that urban residents should be able to see at least 3 trees from their home; there should be 30% tree canopy cover in each neighbourhood; and 300 metres should be the maximum distance to the nearest high-quality public green space. However, achieving the 3-30-300 rule in crowded urban landscapes with multiple demands and objectives placed on limited space can be challenging. There is a lack of practical guidance and tools on how to achieve urban tree canopy cover targets and implement the ‘3-30-300’ rule. In this webinar we provide an overview of different case studies demonstrating how we have used evidence-based and locally informed approaches to develop fit-for-purpose tools for supporting local governments in achieving urban tree canopy targets.
