Pollution removal is directly correlated with leaf area, and UFORE will needs to have some proxy to leaf area. If you have the size of the study area and the tree cover, which could be determined by GIS, UFORE could calculate an estimate of pollution removal. If you also have the percent evergreen of the tree cover it would provide a better estimate.

So to answer your question you will need to have more information on the trees then species, diameter and height.

Hope this is helpful in conducting your UFORE analysis.
