Cuyahoga County Urban Tree Canopy Assessment

Cuyahoga County Planning Commission completed a tree canopy assessment in both 2013 and 2019 using data from 2011 and 2017 respectively. The two assessments allowed for a comparison of the tree canopy in Cuyahoga County over the 6-year period. The results show that Cuyahoga County has a net tree canopy loss of about 6,600 acres, which is a decline of 6.1% since 2011. To view the full report and to learn more about this assessment, please visit the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission website.
