|Goal||Help researchers learn about UK's urban trees|
|Task||Map number, species, and location of urban trees|
|Where||United Kingdom United Kingdom|
Urban Tree Survey volunteers locate, identify, and count trees in United Kingdom streets, parks, and gardens. The public plays a critical role in the project for two important reasons:
1. A project of this size needs many people to contribute for the data to be useful.
Scientists know a lot about trees growing in rural parts of the United Kingdom but less about the trees in urban areas. Information collected in this project will allow London's Natural History Museum and other research organizations to gain a better insight into:
- the make-up of the United Kingdom’s urban forest and what tree species it contains
Funded by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
