Biofiltration systems can improve stormwater quality by treating runoff; in highly urban areas, trees are a more suitable vegetation than the herbaceous species typically used in biofilters. The purpose of this experiment was to assess potential species-related differences in biofiltration systems of four street tree species common in southern Australian urban landscapes.
