Enhancing Urban Greenery: Integrating Environmental Data into 3D Urban Tree Models

This paper addresses the imperative of understanding the environmental impact of urban plant species for sustainable urban development. It introduces a novel method integrating additional environmental data into urban trees, focusing on carbon sequestration and solar radiation. Using Grasshopper and digital 3D tree models, a CO2 calculator is developed, providing precise estimates of sequestration potential. By integrating surface temperature reductions caused by tree shadows with CO2 data, urban planners gain valuable insights for making informed decisions. Results include a userfriendly interface offering recommendations and visualizations for suitable tree species. The discussion emphasizes the significance of data integration, while the conclusion advocates for broader research in evolving urban landscapes, promoting sustainable design knowledge.
