Leverage Your Community’s Tree Benefits & Identity Future Opportunities

Urban tree canopy (UTC) assessments from Davey Resource Group, Inc. provide leaders and stakeholders with valuable insights about a community’s urban tree canopy to intelligently approach environmental sustainability, urban heat island effects, and other impacts of urban forestry.

The UTC includes layers of leaves, branches and stems that cover the ground when viewed from above.

With high-resolution GIS data, we can effectively classify and assess a community’s tree canopy for growth modeling, priority tree planting and planning, and the management of energy conservation, stormwater, and water resource initiatives.

What Is The State Of Your Urban Forest Program?

Knowing the state of your community’s urban forest program is essential for effectively and equitably growing and maintaining the urban forest in your community—and we can help!

Our professional urban foresters can help measure the state of your urban forest through tree inventories, strategic planning, or the development of an urban forest master plan.

To get started, we developed a self-assessment survey to help you analyze your urban forest program.

Based on your responses, our professionals will provide you with your own urban forest program analysis, including:

  • Your city’s urban forest composite score
  • A graph of the Indicators of Your Urban Forest
  • A list of recommended next steps for your community
