The eco-benefits of an urban tree
Because when a tree dries out, it’s not just bad for the climate: Branches that break off are a danger to residents and road traffic. Heavily damaged trees are therefore cut off. In the Berlin district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, this year alone, 2,000 of the 42,000 trees will be cut down, according to estimates by the tree management department of the Straßen- und Grünflächenamt. There are not enough resources for this, criticizes district mayor Monika Herrmann. In addition, trees would be kept alive that could not survive in the medium term in their current locations.”
Bäume kühlen heiße Städte – doch sie brauchen dringend Hilfe, Jun 25th 2022
How we help
Cities and communities take responsibility for their urban green by spending millions on maintenance activities like tree inspection, pruning or irrigation. Irrigation in particular plays a major role for new plantings especially in light of increasingly severe drought stress factors.
Treesense provides a network of representative sensors to have real-time data on the vitality of your trees. Our automatic data analyses lets you understand remotely when it is required to water which trees. With our predictions based on machine learning, we help you utilize your tree experts more efficiently.
