Canopy Conversations: Old Fourth Ward
Did you know that on average 47.9% of the City of Atlanta is covered by trees? Atlanta’s many neighborhoods range widely in their canopy coverage, from a high of 83% in Butner-Tell to a low of 3% in Downtown. You might be surprised to find out where your neighborhood ranks.
Using data from the City of Atlanta’s first urban tree canopy assessment, Trees Atlanta’s newest program, Canopy Conversations, will celebrate the unique characteristics of your neighborhood’s trees and galvanize your neighborhood’s residents and businesses to play a greater role in the conservation and restoration of the urban forest in which they live.
