Tree Canopy Analysis

A tree canopy analysis is a study of where trees are located within an area and how much area the tree canopy covers. This allows us to identify areas that need more tree cover so that we may plant trees in a more strategic way.

The tree canopy cover analysis will identify the extent of the existing tree canopy, identify the potential for new tree plantings, and quantify future benefits associated with planting one million
trees.

The City of Los Angeles currently has a tree canopy cover of 21%. The national average for tree canopy cover is 27%. Help us make L. A. greener.
