The City Of Charlotte, NC

The City of Charlotte and TreesCharlotte (TC) just completed Charlotte's 2017 Urban Forest Master Plan.

Project Narrative:

Faced with an aging canopy and high rates of development, the City of Charlotte and TreesCharlotte (TC) just completed Charlotte's 2017 Urban Forest Master Plan with input from 40 organizations and almost 3,000 citizens, and led by Davey Resource Group. The plan's aim was to clarify the greatest challenges facing their urban forest and map out the most comprehensive way to reach the city's bold 50% canopy goal by 2050.

The City and TC have a unique partnership that leverages both public and private capital to protect and grow Charlotte's urban forest. The newly created plan reveals some interesting analytics:

  • Projections of urban forest coverage by land use classification
  • Quantification of the impact of the tree protection land use ordinance on development projects

Learn how the City and TC plan to use the data collected from citizens as well as Davey's analyses to further expand and deepen their partnership, and to further engage the citizenry. The plan is web-based to ensure the plan's findings reach and engage the entire community.
