A central issue for the Algerian city, in the dry environment, is awareness of the establishment and preservation of particular green spaces within the framework of sustainability. The overall goal of this study is to concentrate on the issues of green space provision in the city of Boussaada. Boussaada is a complex and fragile city with a rich history, archeological and natural diversity, and is under tremendous anthropogenic stress. The city of Boussaada has long had issues with the availability of green areas, a situation that is attributed, among other things, to a flawed urban design that places a premium on the environment. We attempted to define the quantity of green spaces in the city and quantify their richness through this study. The qualitative and quantitative study was carried out with the help of the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) and qualitative analysis and more specifically the species of trees in the new town of Boussaada.
Key words: Green spaces, Boussaada, Natural Heritage, normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), the species of trees.
