Tree Canopy

NLCD tree canopy cover geospatial datasets with spatial resolutions of 30 m are produced by the USDA Forest Service. Tree canopy cover is derived from multi-spectral satellite imagery and other available ground and ancillary information. Tree canopy products for the period 2011-2021 are available for the conterminous United States, and by summer 2023, they will also cover coastal south east Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands.
