A very informative, animated video from the 'American society of Landscape Architects' explaining the various environmental benefits of trees within cities and urban environments.
Urban pollution and flash flooding have been very topical recently in the media with London especially suffering air quality well below minimum public safety levels.
Even though the benefits of ecological landscape practices are well known among academics and landscape architects policy makers and politicians are slow to realise landscaping's ability to solve these modern urban problems.
