Minneapolis & the Urban Tree Canopy

The Minneapolis City Council and the Mayor, along with a number of City departments and divisions, and affiliated commissions actively work with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board to maintain a healthy urban forest with our city limits. City departments actively involved in the process include Public Works, Planning Division of CPED, Regulatory Services, Environmental Management, Neighborhood Revitalization Program and the Citizens Environmental Advisory Committee.

The University of Minnesota completed a study in April, 2011 for the City of Minneapolis to quantify the urban tree canopy. Information from this study will be used as the basis for many ongoing efforts related to trees. See more details about the study, as well as a link to an online mapping tool displaying the results.

The City of Minneapolis tracks the urban tree canopy as part of its sustainability indicators program, learn more.
