The profiles identify each community’s unique strengths, challenges, opportunities, and urban forestry goals developed through:
- Online community survey
- Program research
- One-on-one community meetings
The community map packets are intended to guide local planning and management decisions to help achieve the greatest benefits from urban forestry efforts. These maps show the extent of existing tree canopy, percent tree canopy by land use, the extent of impervious surfaces, impervious hot spots, and potential planting locations prioritized to guide planting efforts and maximize environmental benefits.
