Charlotte's Tree Canopy
With a tree canopy that makes up 46% of total land coverage, Charlotte has one of the highest quality and most extensive tree canopies in the nation. City employees and local volunteers plant about 10,000 trees per year and are aiming to increase that number to 25,000 trees per year. Don McSween, City Arborist for Charlotte monitors the health of the city's dense tree canopy.
