Tree canopy


Although some parts of the city are leafy Brighton's overall tree canopy cover is only 14.4%. This is below the national average for England at 16% and  compares very unfavourably with the best, Farnham, at 45%. London has 21.9% tree cover.

Brighton & Hove has lost many mature trees to disease and development over the last few years. It would be interesting to know if young trees are being planted at a sufficient rate to improve on the 14.4% figure.
