          One of the easiest ways for a city to promote a healthy climate is to increase the tree cover in the community and to protect small urban forests where they still exist. Treepedia is a partnership between MIT’s Senseable City Lab and WEF’s project on the future of cities  to map the condition of trees in urban areas across the world. This is an important collaboration to help cities understand and plan for the future. Thanks to The Guardian for this report.
