Semi-Finalist Evaluation

Judges'' comments

"Unfortunately the layout and information supplied in this proposal is just hugely confusing to follow. The point of valuing ecosystems is valid and seeking mechanisms to replace lost ecosystem functions such as CO2 sequestration ability also important, as is trying to resolve this in a design phase. However, the proposal doesn't really get across a innovative mechanism to do so in an effective manner."

"I agree that trees and green infrastructure are key and currently underused responses to climate change and adaptation. Tree planting is at the heart of the response in many communities.I'm not entirely sure of extent of the work being proposed here. Part of the proposal is about calculating the benefits of trees for various ecosystem services, This has been widely done. (See iTree for one of many examples.)Tree planting (and other vegetated areas) are widely used, and need more use. I note that the specific solution proposed here is a tree exotic to the US. Many of the native trees perform the same functions. Local and native biodiversity is generally a better approach to planting programs."
