In 2015, Tree Pitts­burgh worked with res­i­dents and local stake­hold­ers to cre­ate ReLeaf Man­ches­ter and Chateau (see below), a plan to increase tree canopy cov­er and engage­ment in these neigh­bor­hoods.

Manchester and Chateau

Ele­vat­ed sur­face tem­per­a­ture, low­er tree canopy cov­er, and the poten­tial to increase engage­ment are all con­cerns when look­ing at Man­ches­ter and Chateau. Chateau has the low­est tree canopy cov­er in the city at 5%, com­pared to Pittsburgh’s city-wide tree canopy cov­er of 42%. Man­ches­ter has a cur­rent tree canopy cov­er of 17%. In 2010, a Land­sat satel­lite ther­mal image showed Man­ches­ter had the hottest sur­face tem­per­a­ture of any neigh­bor­hood in the city. Pittsburgh’s aver­age tem­per­a­ture is 96.6°F, while Man­ches­ter is 102.4°F and Chateau’s sur­face tem­per­a­ture 101.4°F.

From work­ing with the com­mu­ni­ty res­i­dents and local orga­ni­za­tions, Tree Pitts­burgh is work­ing to improve and enhance the urban for­est in Man­ches­ter and Chateau. If you’d like to vol­un­teer, check out our Events Cal­en­dar or sched­ule a tree care day for your com­mu­ni­ty.
