What is the definition of sustainable development (in this context)? 🤕

Hi Paul
Thanks for the input.
i tree canopy is a good solid scoping baseline; I am asking for examples of
places where Arb’s or planners use it, or intend to use it, as a metric of
sustainable development.
I do i tree canopy ward assessments often for the FR project. It’s good
enough to provide a good indication of TCC +/- 2% - in my opinion anyway.
The i tree eco reports are great too 👍

I may have come late to the discussion here, or may be missing something,

wouldn't say something like i-Tree Eco help, particularly if you're doing
it

on a ward-by-ward basis?



Also, and as I've raised in my own discussions on something similar that
I'm

involved with, canopy cover is only relevant to the time the data was

captured. You then have to factor in tree loss (felling licences etc.)
against

projected increases and targets, and have future canopy cover analysis to

ensure you're meeting any projected targets as opposed to overseeing a

diminishing canopy cover.
