What is the Value of Urban Forest?

  • - (ACST)
  • Hub Library
    Hub Drive, Aberfoyle Park SA 5159, Australia

A fun, interactive workshop that will help participants understand the value of trees, particularly in urban settings by encouraging participants to consider what makes a good urban tree and understand issues such as impact they are having on carbon, local micro-climate and biodiversity.

The workshop will include:

  • interactive presentation on what a tree is, tree impact on temperature, biodiversity and carbon sequestration
  • practice taking measurements on the selected species
  • a sapling to take home so you can measure carbon sequestration each season. This will be provided along with a fact sheet for how and where to plant the sapling as well as how to take the measurements.
  • a National Science Week cap and badge
  • a book to take home for each family group or individual:

We aim to add thousands of plants to homes, community spaces and schools across Adelaide to revegetate Greater Adelaide and provides a means of sequestering carbon on a large scale; improving the local climate for inhabitants by increasing the shade effects and increasing the biodiversity within the city. What is the value of urban forest? is a pilot program for a larger study currently in planning for groups to learn the value of urban trees and then plant their own sapling to measure annually.

The organisers of What is the Value of Urban Forest? are truly grateful to National Science Week for funding this event, making it free for attendees.
