This project was completed as part of a partnership between the City of Woodbury, the Metropolitan Council, and the University of Minnesota’s Resilient Communities Project (http://www.rcp.umn.edu). The goal of this project was to provide recommendations on how the City can equitably increase its tree canopy coverage and update its approved tree species list. City of Woodbury project lead Kristin Seaman collaborated with students in Eric North’s course, FNRM 4501/5501 - Urban Forest Management: Managing Greenspaces for People, to assess Woodbury's current tree canopy, investigate how it could be equitably expanded in the future, and provide analysis and recommendations for the City to incorporate into their updated tree canopy plan. Final student reports and presentations are available. A videorecording of the students' final presentation is also available at https://vimeo.com/547699038.


Report completed by students enrolled in FNRM 4501/5501 - Urban Forest Management: Managing Greenspaces for People, taught by Dr. Eric North in Spring 2021.
