Introducing the CLEARING HOUSE Spatial Impact Assessment and Classification tool – making trees benefits visible
If you have followed the journey that is the CLEARING HOUSE project, you will already know or have learned that trees have manifold benefits for our cities, and therefore, for us. They help us to bring more biodiversity in our cities. They help us fight climate change by sequestering and storing carbon. They make our air healthier to breathe by removing both gaseous pollutants and particulate matter. On hot days, trees help to cool our cities. Have you noticed that you may feel a little better when you see trees out of your window? Do you feel more relaxed and better when you have visited a forest?
