Thanks to the sup­port of the Pitts­burgh Foun­da­tion, the Hazel­wood Ini­tia­tive and Tree Pitts­burgh are launch­ing an effort to increase pub­lic aware­ness and pub­lic engage­ment in pro­tect­ing and grow­ing tree canopy in Hazel­wood and Glen Hazel. Res­i­dents iden­ti­fied the cre­ation of a neigh­bor­hood ReLeaf plan as part of the 2019 Greater Hazel­wood Com­mu­ni­ty Plan.

Hazelwood and Glen Hazel

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.
