Creating a sense of arrival with attractive (and well maintained) tree planting alongside main routes into town is a cost effective way to say this is a pleasant place to visit and live in. It creates some consistency, softens the impact of any ugly structures and in setting a high standard can encourage everyone to care more and there are studies that show a smart green-scape can also reduce crime. This would also supplement the Boston in Bloom work. Planting schemes could also improve retail and business parks helping attract new investment.
