About 1.7% of the respondents had no formal education, 13.3% had secondary school certificate and 85.0% are graduate of tertiary institution which means that majority of the respondents are literate. The age of respondents that have more understanding about urban trees falls between the ranges of 26-35years. 59.2% were male while 40.8% were female. Majority of the respondents were civil servants of 53.3% which implies that the highest percentage of respondent that have an excellent knowledge about urban trees worked with the government.
