It is a common apprehension among the researcher that micro-level planning for the plantation of various types of trees at suitable sites of the urban spots may reduce the surface heat fluxes of those urban heat islands. A comprehensive study has done to find out the relation between present alignment of road and vegetation covered land of ward no. 19 and 20 of Kolkata Municipal Corporation. Digitized remote sensing images (LISS IV, 2008) and geographical information system together have supported the scientific analysis of the carriage width of the roads, vegetation density, vegetation quality in response to DN values in different pixels and NDVI values, spatial vegetated land in different buffer distance from road network etc. Result between road network and vegetation distribution shows that vegetation concentration is irrespective of carriage width of the network but concentration of vegetation is more alongside the roads and gradually become sparse outwards.
