Thanks, pardner! Seems to me that the Commission must be composed of a
level of divine intelligence (or arrogance) that I have not seen before (or
too much of). I was at the AAAS meetings in 1972, and didn't hear it
mentioned there. Of course there were many more sessions than I could
attend, but it wasn't mentioned in the plenary sessions. Margaret Mead
talked about similar issues, but didn't mention it--insofar as I can
recall.

"Greenwash," however, is a perfectly legitimate term.

 From Philip Wilson's admirable AZ -

"Sustainable Development: -The widely accepted definition is that in the
Brundtland Commission report (1987): ‘Development that meets the needs
of the present generation without compromising the ability of future
generations to meet their needs’. The concept arose at Stockholm in 1972
and has environmental, social and economic aspects."

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,
but

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.
