MD² in collaboration with the Mediterranean University of Reggio Calabria and the Università degli Studi di Bari in Italy are pleased to announce the upcoming publication in the Urban Forestry Urban Greening Journal of a new peer reviewed paper on structural diversity and height growth models in urban forest plantations.

The research was undertaken as current knowledge on the growth models of urban forest plantations several years after their establishment still remains poor and fragmentary. The paper assesses urban forest plantations in terms of tree height growth, crown width and vertical structural using as a case study tree inventory collected in an urban forest plantation of Parco Nord Milano in northern Italy. Clive Davies Principal Partner at MD² and Research Fellow at Newcastle University believes that these analyses could provide important data supporting the planning of new urban forest plantations on reclaimed land and inter alia provide some answers to the questions around plantations growth evaluation and management.
