Making nature’s values visible: can our trees and woodlands make us health, wealthy and wise?

Led by Gillian Petrokofsky with guests Prof Kathy Willis, Prof Gabriel Hemery and Myc Riggulsford

A panel-led discussion exploring natural capital

This session asks questions about the role of trees and woodlands in rural and urban settings in delivering multiple benefits to society and economic benefits to landowners and managers. This specialist panel will discuss some of the most challenging questions surrounding natural capital assets and flows:

  • How  do  you  identify and measure  which  natural  capital  assets  currently  provide  the  greatest  societal  benefits?
  • Is  it  possible  to  put  a  monetary  value  on  these  identified  assets  and if  so,  how?
  • Should we be putting a monetary value on natural capital assets?
  • How  do  you  determine  the  best  places  to  enhance  natural  capital assets,  and  how  should  we  calculate  their  cost?
  • Can urban trees and woodlands save the NHS money – by improving human health and well-being?
  • If urban green is a societal benefit, what type of green is best?

This session encourages active participation; we will be recording the conversation for future publication.
