Every community should establish a tree canopy goal for their community as an important step in ensuring that their valuable green infrastructure is maintained at minimum thresholds, even as the community continues to develop. Each community must first identify what their tree canopy cover is, and then set their own goals to help meet environmental and quality of life goals, including federal and local clean air and water regulations. Once a specific goal is determined, the local government can pursue that goal using policies, procedures, and budget.
