Based on Tree Pittsburgh’s 2010–2015 tree canopy change data, Hazelwood lost 34 acres of tree canopy, making it the 4th highest loss of all City neighborhoods. The neighborhood’s tree canopy cover dropped from 32% canopy in 2010 to 29% canopy in 2015, well below the 2015 citywide average of 41%. Glen Hazel had the second-lowest amount of loss in the City, only losing 1.6 acres of tree canopy. Its overall cover changed from 66.4% to 60% between 2010 and 2015, making it the 4th highest canopied neighborhood.
