Urban Tree Cover Map

This website displays the results of Urban Forest Canopy assessments completed by Treeconomics, Forest Research and other organisations. The site also provides statistics on potential plantable space, historical tree cover and tree cover canopy goals where they are available. For some locations further studies and urban forest reports are also available to download.

The Urban Forest Cover website is maintained by Treeconomics. If you have questions, suggestions or comments please contact us.

”The first step in reincorporating green infrastructure into a community’s planning framework is to measure urban forest canopy and set canopy goals”
