Cuyahoga County Greenprint

Maintaining a robust network of natural places in Northeast Ohio helps shape our quality of life, a healthy environment, and an appealing region. The updated Cuyahoga County Greenprint provides a toolkit to assist communities and property owners in making informed land use decisions. The Greenprint Guide Book presents concepts, analysis, and best practices, while the accompanying Greenprint Viewer offers a wealth of interactive geographic data.

Urban Tree Canopy

Tree canopy is the layer of leaves, branches, and stems of trees that cover the ground when viewed from above. Tree canopy provides improved air and water quality, reduced stormwater runoff, improved natural habitat, and many other benefits. This assessment provides meaningful metrics on the extent of existing and possible tree canopy in the County's communities, watersheds, and neighborhoods.
