Tree canopy is the layer of leaves, branches and tree stems that covers the ground when viewed from above.
The current average tree canopy coverage for the city is 38 percent, down from 50 percent in 1950. Despite this decline, research continues to prove how important trees are to our neighborhoods and communities. With help from our public and private partners we can re-grow our urban forest. Take a class, volunteer or become a member and help us restore, enhance and protect the City of Trees.
