Although the propagation of radio waves in vegetation environments has been widely studied, the actual situation is that mobile phone systems coverage appears to be clearly poor in vegetation than in open places within urban areas. Large measurement campaigns results are presented in this work, providing numerical data that could be useful to correct the radio network planning when parks or groves are around the base stations. Both median and other statistics are provided.
