Urban Tree Canopy

Tree canopy is the layer of leaves, branches, and stems of trees that cover the ground when viewed from above. Tree canopy provides improved air and water quality, reduced stormwater runoff, improved natural habitat, and many other benefits. This assessment provides meaningful metrics on the extent of existing and possible tree canopy in the County's communities, watersheds, and neighborhoods.
