I think that providing residents the option to plant in the right-of-way or in their yard emphasized that more trees don’t just benefit individuals, but the entire community. Another interesting note I found was that Phoenix’s canopy goal is 25% by 2030 (up from 13%) and Seattle’s canopy goal is 30% by 2037 (up from 23%). We may have farther to go, but we are all headed in the same direction!
