Urbanization causes wholesale transformation of the local environment, affecting it at a fundamental level by altering habitat, climate, hydrology, and primary production. Especially tree species richness in an area facilitates the opportunity for the other living organism to develop. Because trees have very long life span, good crown cover to nest, breed and fruits to eat etc. We have studied tree species diversity in four campuses of Roever Educational Institutions. In that we have estimated richness of trees, dominant trees in each campuses, estimated Tree Diversity Index using Simpson’s Diversity Index. We found that Thanthai Hans Roever College has highest tree species diversity with the D value of 0.057809222. Among the all species coconut dominate all the species in richness followed by Drumstick trees.
