UTC report published - finds Charlottesville has over 46% UTC; Charlottesville, VA

A Report on the City of Charlottesville's Existing and Possible Urban Tree Canopy

The analysis of Charlottesville’s urban tree canopy (UTC) was carried out by the Virginia Department of Forestry in collaboration with the City of Charlottesville and the Chesapeake Bay Program. Assistance was provided by the Virginia Geospatial Extension Program (VGEP) at Virginia Tech’s Department of Forestry
and by the Spatial Analysis Laboratory (SAL) of the University of Vermont.

The goal of the project was to apply the USDA Forest Service’s UTC assessment protocols to the City of Charlottesville. This analysis was conducted based on year 2008 data.
