This research proposes a novel way of utilizing technologies for identifying potential areas for roadside tree planting. Urban greenery as a resource should be decided through participatory approaches that involve citizen engagement and empowerment. Therefore, the research focuses on proposing inclusive and data- informed tools in engaging both citizens and municipal authorities in collaborative decision- making processes. The solution is a web platform called “TreeHopper” enabling and guiding stakeholders towards data informed decisions. Tree planting is observed from two perspectives – the bird’s eye strategic view and from an augmented reality view where citizens can make local proposals for possible tree locations. The project’s impact can be pinpointed into three aspects, important for urban design and participatory practices - feasibility, environmental and social impact.
