In the urban environment, resilience is a result of the shocks caused by pollution, noise and changes in land usage, through the process of 'artificialization', typical of the process of building a city. Since the city is unthinkable without natural elements, therefore, it is important to study the tolerance to the 'denaturalization' urban system. The main objective of the article is to determine the benefits of urban vegetation on thermal dissipation and gaseous pollutants. From studies

The outcomes show significant differences on thermal dissipation and relative humidity, allowing to confirm that urban vegetation plays an important role in reaching increasingly sustainable levels at city scale.
