Evaluating the meaning and distribution of ‘Tree Equity’ in Surrey: An interdisciplinary approach

Having access to trees reduces respiratory illness and improves mental health and well-being (Pataki et al 2021). Tress also provide protection from climate extremes such as flooding and heatwaves (Leets et al 2022). Read more

Identification of tree species based on UAV captured images

Computer Computer vision technology has been found to be an important application in remotely sensed data understanding. This research exploits high‐resolution images captured by UAV payload cameras to identify tree species. Read more

Understanding and predicting sensitivity of Amazonia’s forests to increasing heat and drought

Tropical forests fulfil important roles both for climate and biodiversity. They are exposed to a range of pressures including an increasingly hotter and erratic climate as well as changing atmospheric composition (particularly CO2 and N2O levels raising) (Lapola et al., 2023). Read more

Interactions between introduced tree species and native mycorrhizal fungi in the UK

Mycorrhizal symbioses are one of the most extensive and important biotic interactions in terrestrial ecosystems, typically providing plants with improved access to nutrients in exchange for carbohydrates produced via photosynthesis. Read more

Native tree reinforcement of slope stability during establishment at the A83 Rest and Be Thankful

This 4-year project, funded through Forest Research, aims to evaluate mechanical and hydrological mechanisms of slope stabilisation during the ongoing establishment of native tree species at A83 Rest and Be Thankful, an area prone to extensive and disruptive debris flows that are widely reported in the media.
