Urban Tree Canopy Project

Download Urban Tree Canopy Community Prioritization Project Final Report

The Gateway Cities Council of Governments (COG) in collaboration with Loyola Marymount University’s Center for Urban Resilience and TreePeople received a $200,000 grant from the California Resilience Challenge (CRC) through the Bay Area Council to develop local-level urban tree canopy assessments along with a community engagement and prioritization component in four cities: Paramount, Vernon, Lynwood, and Montebello. The Urban Tree Community Prioritization Project produced analyses, reports, and maps to empower the four participating Gateway communities to increase their urban canopy, reduce climate change impacts due to extreme heat, and enhance social, economic and public health.
