Theoretical Framework for Trees Management in Campus Landscape Design
Keywords:Theoretical framework, tree management, campus design, comfort
AbstractGood tree management is the key basis for greener campus of the future. Lacking in tree management in term of knowledge is one of the factors that trees will produce hazards to the students and staffs at the campus. Two objectives of this study are (i) to determine the user comfort attributes that significantly influent the safety landscape and (ii) to create the theoretical framework for tree management in campus design. The qualitative method was chosen in this study. This study provides the guidance for the landscape architect to make the right design decision to ensure the user comfortability for safety built landscape environment.
