Minneapolis and the Urban Tree Canopy

The University of Minnesota Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis Laboratory recently completed a study for the City of Minneapolis to quantify the urban tree canopy. This study was completed by the University of Minnesota and 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. Information from this study will be used as the basis for many ongoing efforts related to trees.
