Nature and Context

Urban trees provide important ecological, economic, social, and health benefits for cities. Many cities create and implement policies to preserve and expand urban tree canopy cover through conservation, tree planting, and educational campaigns; these efforts are typically mandated by municipal ordinances. Policy decisions, however, are often made with limited information.
