2010 in Ryan Mello’s words - Features - Weekly Volcano - The alternative newsweekly for Tacoma and Olympia:
"...the Urban Forestry Project has been really significant. We have a goal in our Comprehensive Plan that we adopted this year that says we are going to have thirty-percent tree canopy cover by the year 2030. So if you look at a satellite map of Tacoma you should see thirty-percent of the city covered by tree canopy (by 2030). That's basically the goal - right now we have about eleven percent, so we have a ways to go."
