Literature review outlining the Economic, Psychosocial and Wellness, Environmental, Public Health benefits of urban trees.
The scientific literature was reviewed to assess the current scientific knowledge of urban forest benefits. Benefits were arranged into categories of Economic, Psychosocial and Wellness, Environmental, Public Health, and Other. A section also details community concerns with trees and explores the perceived disadvantages or conflicts of urban trees.
Each section in this literature review is organized to stand alone, providing a comprehensive overview of the relevant literature for the topic and a brief summary. (2004) By Dan Staley for the Casey Trees Endowment Fund.
