Abstract: Urban greenery plays an irreplaceable role in local climate creation. We present the principles of urban vegetation as a perfect air conditioner that effectively cools the environment through evapotranspiration and balances temperatures. We show the possibilities of quantification of the vegetation role, including the assessment of ecosystem services and examples of the use of different types of thermal data for the assessment of urban environment and climate.
