The value of urban tree study to geography and to environmental education is established. The recording format, tree-habitat attributes and survey methodology are elaborated. General interpretations of spatial variations in tree characteristics associated with facets of urban geography, incuding pre-urbanisation relicts, management regime, town-plan configuration, urban redevelopment and expansion, are discussed. Some specific examples are enlisted to illustrate biogeographical concepts such as species composition and diversity, species range and migration, theory of island biogeography and plant-environment interactions.
