Tree canopy coverage is vital for urban stormwater management as trees capture and store rainwater in their canopies and root zones, eventually releasing this water over time into the atmosphere through evapotranspiration.
Trees also help to slow down and temporarily store stormwater runoff due to their physical presence and the ability of tree roots to improve soil conditions to promote infiltration. Urban trees also provide a host of other community benefits including those related to aesthetics, air quality, shading, property values, and energy.
