  • Urban forestry project ties residential nature to health care spending

    A new project led by University of Illinois recreation, sport and tourism professor Matthew Browning will document the health care cost savings associated with nature in residential settings. Browning and his project partners aim to develop a GIS-based modeling tool for use by city arborists across the U.S. that they can use to estimate their communities’ potential rate of return on investments in urban forestry.
