Trees & Design Action Group, made up of landscape practices and organisations, looks at why urban trees are important but under threat and covers subsidence and trees in new housing schemes.
Landscape architect Martin Kelly, who chairs the group, said cost benefit analysis in New York revealed $1 invested in trees a year yielded $5 in quantifiable benefits.
No Trees No Future was first published in 2008 but has been re-released, edited by CABE and English Heritage. It is targeted at designers, developers, builders and planners.
"The report aims to provide clear guidance without an overwhelming amount of technical arboricultural detail," he said of the document.
It includes two case studies looking at actions, achievement and lessons learned from prioritising trees on recent projects.
