Where should all the trees go?

An analysis of urban canopy cover in Australia.

In 2014, 202020 Vision published the Where Are All The Trees? report based on research undertaken by the Institute of Sustainable Futures at the UTS Sydney. This was the first time that urban canopy had been benchmarked nationally.

 This year, RMIT and CAUL Hub researchers published a follow-up report called, Where Should All The Trees Go?, which compares canopy levels, overlays urban heat and socio-economic (SEIFA) data, and provides an overall vulnerability indicator. We have taken these findings and prepared state and national reports.
