The influence of the difference in layout of the street trees is mainly due to the difference in shortwave radiation falling on the human body. The reduction in MRT is greater on the northern sidewalk of the east–west road than on the eastern sidewalk of the north– south road. Because the shadows of the roadside trees fall in a direction perpendicular to the eastern sidewalk of the north–south road and in a direction parallel to the northern sidewalk of the east–west road, there is a large area where the human body is under the influence of a shadow on the northern sidewalk of the east–west road.
