Tree canopy cover is an important measure of the amount of area and locations which are directly and indirectly influenced by trees, which provide many benefits, or ecosystem services, to communities. The distribution of tree canopy is a useful indicator of where these benefits occur within the city. Tree canopy measurements are commonly used to assist with the development and monitoring of urban tree management policies.
