dc.description.abstractThis is a case study of tree assessments on vacant lots in Columbus and research on the benefits of tree canopy growth. Green Columbus enacted this study to find a solution for adequately maintaining existing trees on vacant lots throughout the city. The purpose of the research was to find comparable cities that have implemented successful programs and policies that protect trees and grow urban tree canopy. Our group also identified the threat of the urban heat island effect, tree canopy benefits, and city budgeting. We hope to support and amplify the city's efforts in the Columbus Urban Forestry Master Plan as well as support the organization of ongoing tree maintenance in Columbus. This case study is presented in the form of an ArcGIS Story Map for a more accessible report for all members of the community.en_US
