 -   Tree canopy cover was inversely associated with crime in New Haven, CT.  -  A 10% increase in tree canopy was associated with a 15% decrease in violent crime.  -  A 10% increase in tree canopy was associated with a 14% decrease in property crime.  -  Results add to the body of evidence suggesting trees’ crime prevention potential. From Landscape & Urban Planning 143, Nov 2015:  Research Note: "Greater tree canopy cover is associated with lower rates of both violent and property crime in New Haven, CT", in Landscape and Urban Planning

" for every 10 percent increase in tree canopy cover, there was a 15 percent decrease in the violent crime, and a 14 percent fall in the property crime rate. "

"Can trees actually deter crime?"
See https://is.gd/a2WZHGsee also https://depts.washington.edu/hhwb/Thm_Crime.html

and here's an interesting one - EAB increases crime rates!  "invasive tree pests may be associated with social costs worth considering when managing invasive species. By extension, healthy trees may provide significant social benefits."

and so on.

As it happens, I was involved with a ludicrous case where the local
constabulary's "Architectural Liaison Officer" wanted the back gardens of a
number of properties to have no access. Presumably if there were no garden
gates then the local ne'er-do-wells wouldn't be able to access said
properties for whatever misdemeanours they might seek to commit. I was
obliged to point out that as the said gardens would contain a number of
protected trees then when the time came for tree works, all the equipment
that might be needed would have to be carried through the houses, and
furthermore, all the debris would have to be removed through the properties
as well.

I've also lost count of the number of times I've been asked to remove trees
because the Police have reasoned that trees provided cover for the breaking
and entering fraternity. I've usually been asked to do this immediately
after a burglary has been committed.

Trees and crime prevention might be a bit tricky.

Bill.

That, while we're talking about crime, is daylight robbery!
