Urban tree canopy (UTC) assessments from Davey Resource Group, Inc. provide leaders and stakeholders with valuable insights about a community’s urban tree canopy to intelligently approach environmental sustainability, urban heat island effects, and other impacts of urban forestry.
The UTC includes layers of leaves, branches and stems that cover the ground when viewed from above.
With high-resolution GIS data, we can effectively classify and assess a community’s tree canopy for growth modeling, priority tree planting and planning, and the management of energy conservation, stormwater, and water resource initiatives.
