Targeted Planting Map
The map below shows the suitable areas to plant a treebelt for ammonia mitigation 5Km around protected sites (SAC and SSSI). This is based on i) how close your location is to a protected site, ii) the level of ammonia emissions in your locality and iii) wind direction. If your location sits on a 'Most suitable' square that is great news and your treebelt planting will help reduce effects of ammonia on nearby protected sites. Even if you plant a treebelt outside the most suitable squares, it will help capture ammonia emissions from sources of ammonia upwind of the planting location and improve overall air quality.
You can change your location by clicking on the map. The marker also gives information on ammonia concentration (data from the year 2019) at this location. The resolution of the ammonia concetration layer is 1Km2.
