The California High Speed Rail Authority will offset the emissions associated with construction of the rail line, and large-scale plantings of trees have been identified as the method of choice.
Urban Ecos was hired to carry out the following:
- Determine the feasibility of using trees to offset the project's emissions.
- Estimate the number, size, and planting site types of the trees.
- Work with stakeholders to find locations for trees.
- Assist in developing educational materials.
