    An authoritative guide to using timber culled from the UK’s urban timber resource (street, park and urban woodland trees). This BRE Trust report provides guidance on the selection and identification of high value stems, processing, drying, transportation, storage and the logistical problems associated with felled material. The report aims to promote the use of many common and exotic urban tree species for high-value solid wood products rather than processed for firewood, chipped to produce mulch or sent to landfill.

  2. Low Flow Water Fittings: Will People Accept Them? ( November 2012)

    With the challenges of global warming, climate change and population growth, and increasing concern in the UK that the demand for wholesome water will soon begin to exceed supply, a study was conducted to survey the acceptability of introducing low flow water fittings to domestic buildings. The study included: an experiment to test public opinion about low flow water fittings, focus group, survey of manufacturers and installers, and a literature review of public attitudes and behavior regarding water use. The results give an improved understanding of the barriers and enablers to water-efficient behavior which is essential to the appropriate installation of low flow rate appliances and their acceptance by the public.
