One of the goals of our Cambridge Canopy Project is to increase the number of trees in the city.
There are currently more than 300,000 trees in Cambridge. About 74% of them are in gardens and on private land, which make up more than 75% of land in the city.
If every household in Cambridge with a garden planted one tree, our tree population would increase by more than 10%. This would have a large positive impact on our collective efforts to adapt to and mitigate climate change.
To help us achieve this ambition, we want to understand more about your perception of trees in private gardens.
If you live in Cambridge, please complete our short survey about trees in gardens. It should take less than 10 minutes.
The survey is open until 31 October 2020. Contact us if you have any questions about it.
Your response will help us understand more about what Cambridge residents think of tree planting and tree removal. This in turn will help us better support and enhance tree-planting in the city.
