“We have to have goals,” Litchy said, “and one of ours is to increase the tree canopy.”Lacey Jennen, Litchy’s predecessor on the job and now her supervisor at UAFS, estimated Fort Smith’s tree canopy at 13 percent in 2006 — a far cry from the 40 percent canopy recommended for community health.To help increase the canopy, Litchy oversees a commemorative tree planting program, assisting donors in selecting a suitable tree for planting in Oak Cemetery or any of the city’s parks.
