Find out how trees benefit people and wildlife in free online talk Free online talk

The Benefits of Urban Trees for People & Wildlife is the subject of a free online talk that people are being invited to attend.

The one-hour talk takes place on Tuesday 14 May at 12.30pm and is being hosted by Saving Devon’s Treescapes, with guest speaker Danni from Treeconomics.

Saving Devon’s Treescapes is a partnership project led by Devon Wildlife Trust on behalf of the Devon Ash Dieback Resilience Forum.

Devon's treescapes are stunning and crucial habitats for so much wildlife. But they are under threat from Ash Dieback which is estimated to kill at least 90% of Devon’s ash trees in the coming years. It will affect everyone, but everyone can be part of the solution.

Saving Devon’s Treescapes (SDT) is leading the fight on Ash Dieback on behalf of the Devon Ash Dieback Resilience Forum, and looking for Devon's communities, landowners and businesses to get involved and help us to save Devon's precious treescapes.

This free online talk looks at the benefits of urban trees for people and wildlife.

In this talk, Danni from treeconomics will be sharing the magnificent benefits of trees and how this impacts upon the communities, wildlife and local environment. The talk will explore not just what these benefits are, but how tools such i-Tree and Tree Equity can be used to help us understand these in detail. The talk will also explore some of the challenges urban trees face such as climate change and pests and diseases.

This is part of the Saving Devon's Treescapes tree celebration week.

SDT is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, One Tree Planted and other funders. People can read more about it at
