Tree Canopy Study Can Be Planning Factor

Information gathered by CITYgreen software, about tree-covered areas, can help plans aimed to improve cityscape.

"Tree cover provides enormous benefits by reducing air pollution, slowing stormwater runoff, and helping us conserve energy. Cities are grappling to meet regulatory requirements for air and water quality; failing to do so jeopardizes federal funding for public projects. CITYgreen provides urban leaders a much-needed financial case for urban tree cover."
