Urban canopy (ur′bən kan′ə pē) noun The layer of leaves, branches and stems that cover the ground when viewed from above.
That’s the official definition, but here is a better way to think of urban canopy: trees in developed areas that must be planted and cared for so that they provide shade, energy savings, cleaner air and water, keep us healthier, provide food and shelter for wildlife and make our surroundings more beautiful.
Plant or help care for trees and get benefits for years to come.
