City of Montpelier Tree Board to Give Tree Canopy Report
Results of Montpelier’s Urban Tree Canopy Assessment Released on March 10
On March 10 at 7:00 pm in City Hall, the Montpelier Tree Board and the Conservation Commission and will host a presentation of the city’s Urban Tree Canopy Assessment. Performed by the UVM Spatial Analysis Lab, the tree canopy assessment identifies how much area is covered by tree canopy and which areas are available for planting of additional trees.
The presentation will provide an overview of which city zones contain the most tree canopy and which zones could use improvement. Discussions of areas of improvement will be narrowed down to the neighborhood and parcel level.
The presentation will be followed by a discussion about how to translate the results of the assessment into tree planting projects.
