Ecosystem services of urban trees

Last week we visited the Shanghai Roots & Shoots organization. They are planting one million trees in Inner Mongolia to mitigate desertification and offset greenhouse emissions. At the same time, Roots & Shoots educators want to inform people about a number of other ecosystem services provided by trees. It has reminded me about a one-pager “Ecosystem Services of Urban Trees,” which we have created last year for the Urban Silviculture research and education project (PI: Gretchen Ferenz) in the Urban Environment Program at Cornell University Cooperative Extension-NYC.
