The Tree Report Card, now in its seventh year, is the only independent tree canopy assessment of a major U.S. city. It measures the quantity and quality of Washington D.C.’s trees and tree canopy and public and private efforts to expand and sustain it. Each spring we release a new report that provides data on our urban forest and helps to raise awareness and encourage others to get involved with helping to expand and sustain the District’s trees.
Each report reviews the previous year (2014 is the current edition) and is released on Arbor Day, the last Friday in April. The overall grade for 2014 is a B-.
