  • Abstract in English : Recent research into the effects of woodland on the value of property is presented. Reviews of techniques available to measure the amenity value of trees are followed by a brief description of the date sources. Trees and water feature have always been an important element in gardens designed for stately homes. Mature well stocked gardens with trees and shrubs, or views over the woodland, are often mentioned as a feature in estate agents sales particulars of conventional houses and cottages. In this study trees and woodlands added a statistically significant amount to house prices.
