What Is An Urban Tree Canopy Analysis (UTC)?
Urban tree canopy is the layer of leaves, branches, and stems of trees that cover the ground when viewed from above. AMEC conducted the City's UTC analysis by measuring this layer using leaf-on multi-spectral aerial imagery from the National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP).
