In street canyons, with increasing absorption and diffusion of street boundaries and furniture, the sound attenuation along the length could be increased. Well designed and placed vegetation could have similar effects. Therefore, knowledge of such acoustic properties of vegetation is required to accurately predict sound propagation and optimise the use of green surfaces for reducing the noise impact. However, measurements and modelling of such acoustic properties of vegetation are still rather… Expand
