Amenity Value

CAVAT (Capital Asset Valuation for Amenity Trees) is a method to calculate the public amenity value of a tree. CAVAT provides a method for managing trees as public assets rather than liabilities. It is designed not only to be a strategic tool and aid to decision-making in relation to the tree stock as a whole, but also to be applicable to individual cases, where the value of a single tree needs to be expressed in monetary terms.

The total CAVAT valuation for the public trees in Islington is £908,100,000!
