Tree Canopy Coverage

Target

Maintain the city's 31 percent tree canopy level through 2015.

Trend Analysis

In 2011, the University of Minnesota completed a study for the City of Minneapolis to quantify the urban tree canopy, an effort funded by a grant from the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund. The study estimates the amount of tree canopy currently present, as well the amount of canopy that could potentially be established. This study will be the baseline as the City measures progress in the future and will be used as the basis for many ongoing efforts related to trees.
