DescriptionResidential lands often represent the largest potential areas for expanding urban tree canopy cover (O'Neil-Dunne 2009; O'Neil-Dunne 2011; O'Neil-Dunne 2012). Thus, adding trees to private residential properties is critical to accomplishing urban greening goals, such as ambitious tree canopy cover targets. While municipal arborists and nonprofit urban forestry organizations have traditionally focused on tree planting in public lands along streets and in parks, some organizations are branching out to private residential properties to meet their greening objectives.
