Tree Canopy Assessment


The U.S. Forest Service awarded NVCOG a grant to assess, map, and characterize tree cover across the region.

Tree cover reduces air temperature, filters air pollution, and can improve property values and quality of life in urban areas. The final deliverables of this project will include a regional report with municipal annexes, a story map, and recommendations to improve tree cover.

In addition to these assessments, learn more about why increasing tree cover is priority for the Lamont administration.
