The equitable distribution of trees throughout cities ensures that all neighborhoods have access to the multitude of health and climate resilience benefits of urban forests. Tree canopy assessments allow cities to understand their canopy distribution and precisely identify areas with low tree canopy and high planting potential. Cities and nonprofits can then plan their efforts to maximize ecosystem benefits, develop citywide benchmarks, monitor canopy trends, and inform management plans. This presentation will explore how canopy assessments support inclusive urban forest management through informed plans, projects, and policies.
