You may find useful the attached conceptual paper, “The Urban Watershed Continuum: Evolving Spatial and Temporal Dimensions”, recently published in Urban Ecosystems, and available at on the US Forest Service website at http://www.treesearch.fs.fed.us/pubs/40671 .

The finer the resolution of the input the better the output.

I’m not sure when you said “Trees shade…” if you meant UTC or not, if not my apologies; if so the difference is even more significant than you thought!http://treebaltimore.org/baltimores-trees/#canopy
