This is some intro copy to help introduce why
trees are good for people, animals, the environment and so on.
We primarily focus our projects in “areas of greatest need”: those defined by the 2015 Urban Tree Canopy Assessment as low-canopy and by the 2015 Urban Heat Management Study as high-heat areas. West and south Louisville are currently our highest-priority areas.
The majority of our planting projects are conducted on privately-owned property, which comprises approximately 70% of available planting space in Jefferson County. TreesLouisville seeks to identify planting opportunities and develop partnerships with large landholders within the county (see our work with JCPS and business parks like Riverport and Eastpointe) and landowners who may not typically be involved in tree planting efforts.
