Research & Mapping
Casey Trees has been conducting research on D.C.’s trees since our founding. Looking inward to improve upon our own practices as an organization and broadly to inform urban forestry best management practices — we are striving to effectively reach D.C.’s goal of 40% tree canopy.
How does Casey Trees do this?
The Technical Services and Research Department uses a combination of fieldwork, remote sensing and aerial imagery which draws from emerging techniques in urban forest management and on well-vetted methods of quantifying the benefits of urban trees.
