Green city: clean city? Determining the value of vegetation in urban design

Trees and plants have the potential to improve life in cities; improving air quality is just one benefit. But we need to choose the right plants and the right places to put them. In this lecture, Associate Professor Jennifer Salmon explores tree planting in the city and the importance of valuing vegetation in our neighbourhoods.
