Social and Economic Benefits of Trees in Cities
Abstract:A study in Sacramento, California, indicates that there is a relationship between the satisfaction levels of neighborhood park users and the landscape character of such parks. Trees are perceived as an important natural feature in the urban landscape and have an influence on property values. These relationships present significant opportunities for the application of forestry expertise in urban environments.
