Environment and Crime in the Inner City Does Vegetation Reduce Crime? 

12-11-2012 03:47 PM

Authors: E. Frances Kuo and C. William Sullivan Year of Publication: 2001 Country of Study: USA This article reports on research conducted by the authors in an inner-city neighborhood of Chicago to examine the relationship between crime and vegetation. The authors hypothesize that, contrary to traditional perception, vegetation, in particular high-canopy trees and grass, deters crime in poor inner-city neighborhoods and, specifically, that higher levels of vegetation will be associated with lower levels of property crimes, violent crimes and total crimes.
