Codify the District's tree canopy goal
In 2008, the City set a goal of creating a 40% tree canopy by 2035. To reach that goal, 8,600 trees must be planted each year while losing only 6% canopy coverage annually. Currently, the goal is not set down in any official city policies or regulations. To ensure that it is treated as a city priority and that canopy is protected, the District should codify this goal.
