Expanding the tree canopy ?What does that actually mean .....Just let the 
trees grow bigger and wider ?A metric would be actual tree/woodland area with 
minimum stocking. In urban areas , much the same with tree numbers as a back 
up possibly.The Forest Condition Surveys showed the canopy cover was subject 
to many variables from natural occurances ie climate (frost/wind) along with 
predation from insects eg Winter moth.But there you go DSent from my Samsung 
Galaxy smartphone.

  for the future - consultation Thanks for clarifying Brynley,As part of the 
White Rose Forest project we have secured some data from BlueSky to ascertain 
what the canopy cover of each WRF signatory Authoritycurrently is. The aim is 
to increase the canopy cover by one third by 2036. Sonow we have an idea what 
we have, and where it is (not what it is, i.e.species etc.), then projections 
can be made about what is needed and where.Lots of landowner engagement and 
buy-in will be required!There may be opportunities to develop GreenStreets 
SPDs for certainAuthorities if required, which may help in a Planning 
context.It's only a snapshot of the proposal I'm afraid, but happy to 
elaborate if ithelps your query?Paul-- The UK Tree Care mailing listTo
