ABSTRACT
The article focuses on vegetation management developments launched in Great Britain including updates to the way risk from trees is managed and the Sustainable Use Directive. It mentions the important role that can be played by vegetation in mitigating the localised impact of global warming. It cites the longer-term impact of climate change on vegetation management. A research into vegetation growth patterns is being conducted by consultancy ADAS in expectation of higher temperatures.
