Not in this case. It was a US study that compared neighborhoods that were otherwise similar socio-economically, but social outcomes were better in those neighbourhoods that had existing canopies of mature trees. No squeaky wheels or influx of money involved.

The reason I'm aware of the study is because Marvin Caplan, councillor of ward 1 at the time, was motivated by it to start a street tree planting initiative in the North End. Not sure how far he got with it.
