In early 2018, “CAVAT (Capital Asset Value for Amenity Trees): valuing trees as public assets[1]” was published. The paper described the history and development of CAVAT and featured five case study examples of how CAVAT is being used to protect trees in the urban environment.

In an exciting new project, Fera, Forest Research, and the CAVAT Exec Board have teamed up to determine – for the first time – the extent of CAVAT usage across Great Britain, and to understand how and for what purposes CAVAT is being used.

The project will inform not only the on-going support of CAVAT, but it will also help with broader research on valuing urban trees, and strategic management of urban trees. 

This questionnaire will ask you about your experience of CAVAT to inform this research.
