Research & Mapping
Casey Trees has been conducting research on D.C.’s trees through our Technical Services and Research Department since our founding. Using a combination of fieldwork, remote sensing and aerial imagery, Technical Services and Research draws from emerging techniques in urban forest management and on well-vetted methods of quantifying the benefits of urban trees.
Technical Services and Research work consists of:
- Maps showing the composition, extent and effects of the urban forest
- Fieldwork conducted by Casey Trees staff, interns, volunteers and citizen scientists.
- Aerial imagery analyzed by our team to gain a more cohesive understanding of our urban canopy
