Many of the rec­om­men­da­tions in the Pitts­burgh Urban For­est Mas­ter Plan (see below) focus on increas­ing tree canopy cov­er in low­er-canopy neigh­bor­hoods through con­nect­ing and engag­ing with the com­mu­ni­ty. Pittsburgh’s city-wide aver­age tree canopy cov­er is 42% but this is unequal­ly dis­trib­uted through­out dif­fer­ent neigh­bor­hoods. To bet­ter work with the unique chal­lenges that exist in Pittsburgh’s diverse regions, Tree Pitts­burgh is focused on work­ing with com­mu­ni­ties to cre­ate neigh­bor­hood-lev­el urban for­est mas­ter plans. The goal is to increase tree canopy cov­er and engage­ment on a local­ized scale by plant­i­ng more trees and ensur­ing for their care.

Tree Pittsburgh’s work focus­es in areas with low­er tree canopy cov­er, ele­vat­ed urban heat island issues, com­pro­mised air qual­i­ty, local­ized flood­ing or stormwa­ter runoff prob­lems, and exist­ing Tree Ten­ders. From work­ing with the com­mu­ni­ty res­i­dents and local orga­ni­za­tions, Tree Pitts­burgh strives to cre­ate plans that are rel­e­vant and address oppor­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges at the neigh­bor­hood lev­el.
