Urban Forests and Their Potential to Combat Food Insecurity: Analyzing the Potential of Edible Street Trees in New York City
This project analyzes the distribution of street trees in New York City with edible components and their alignment with areas of the city that are food insecure. The analysis considers both species proximity and the seasonality of materials available for harvest. In the process, the project seeks to improve our understandings of how urban greenspaces and their trees might help address urban food insecurity.
