Single line trees represent one possibility to establish several trees in urban areas. As the name implies, single line trees are arranged along e.g. streets, bicycle paths and sidewalks and the trees are situated on one side. Trees have multiple effects on the local micro-climate conditions, absorb particular matter and provide shade for people as well as for buildings. One of the main positive effects for the human well-being in periods with high temperatures is the air cooling effect. The mentioned effect of street trees in general depends on different factors such as tree size, canopy coverage, planting density, tree species, tree health, location, availability of root water or leaf area index.
