Making Urban Trees Count: Documentation for Stormwater Performance-Based Credit

CREDITING FRAMEWORK PRODUCT #7 of Making Urban Trees Count: A Project to Demonstrate the Role of Urban Trees in Achieving Regulatory Compliance for Clean Water

This paper provides the documentation behind the Stormwater Performance-Based Credit.

The Center for Watershed Protection developed a national Stormwater Performance-Based Credit for tree planting. This method can be adopted by regulatory entities who wish to offer a scientifically defensible credit that encourages greater use of trees for meeting state (or local) stormwater management requirements. The credit quantifies an event-based reduction in runoff volume and nutrient and sediment loads associated with tree planting.
