ADD-TREES

AI-elevated Decision-support via Digital Twins for Restoring and Enhancing Ecosystem Services

ADD-TREES is a pioneering Artificial Intelligence (AI) research project providing innovative technologies that will aid crucial decisions about land use change. 

ADD-TREES has a focus on initiatives to create new woodlands and forests. It aims to feed directly into the UK Government Environment Act 2021 target of planting half a million hectares of new trees to increase carbon capture and other greenhouse gases as part of the UK’s strategy to achieve Net Zero by 2050.

Through four interlinked work packages, researchers at the University of Exeter and University College London will develop user-bespoke digital twins and co-create decision support tools directly with and for policy makers and large landholders. Our engaged users include Defra, MoD, National Trust, Network Rail, Forestry England, National Forest Company and the Woodland Trust.
