National Geographic featured several urban tree canopy datasets produced by the Rubenstein School’s Spatial Analysis Laboratory (SAL) in a special on-line Arbor Day article “Nine Cities That Love Their Trees—and What They’re Doing About It.” The SAL, directed by Jarlath O’Neil-Dunne, has been performing urban tree canopy assessment for the last 8 years around the country, including the cities of New York, Baltimore, and Sacramento.
To date, the SAL has helped over 70 communities in North America better understand their green infrastructure. Over 45 RSENR undergraduate students have worked on the urban tree canopy assessment projects during that timeframe
