Urban Tree Canopy Cover: Structure, Function, and Assessment
Wednesday September 30, 2020 – Noon to 1 pm
Speaker: Dr Eric Wiseman, Virginia Tech
Urban tree canopy cover is the aggregation of overhead vegetation in built environments that provides critical ecosystem services ranging from increased property values to better human health.
To maximize these benefits, we must understand the spatial and temporal patterns of tree canopy cover.
Technology advancements are rapidly improving our ability to assess tree canopy cover and make better decisions about urban forest conservation and management.
In this presentation, you will learn about the structure and function of urban tree canopy cover and publicly-available tools to easily assess canopy cover in your community.
