A question about shading calculation for heat island credit, non-roof measures.

In the LEED reference Guide (V4), the example shows a parking area with shading produced by tree canopy (page 203 of the LEED reference guide). The guide details that this shading area represents 95 sqm.

Are there any further guidance to calculate these shadings for trees ?

These shading calculations sound feasible but it clearly complexifies the way to comply with this requirement.

Thanks for your help !

Best regards
