URBAN TREE CANOPY ASSESSMENTChelan, Washington, USA
Scope of Work
Chelan, a city of approximately eight square miles, is surrounded by agricultural areas and the popular vacation area of Lake Chelan. It has a population of roughly 4,000 residents. The city and its unincorporated areas are experiencing urban growth as a result of its popularity. With this growth comes new development which is often associated with a loss of trees and other types of vegetation. This study aimed to provide the City with a benchmark of its tree canopy and other land cover types in order to track changes and monitor its urban forest health and growth. This urban forest resource is a critical element of the region’s green infrastructure, contributing to environmental quality, public health, water supply, local economies, and aesthetics.
