Woodbury Tree Canopy Project Featured on PlanIt Podcast

In 2020, RCP teamed up with the Metropolitan Council to offer research and technical assistance to Twin Cities metro area communities in support of projects that enhanced community resilience and implemented elements of their adopted 2040 comprehensive plan.

The City of Woodbury proposed a project to investigate the city's urban tree canopy. Throughout the 2020–2021 academic year, University of Minnesota students and faculty assisted Woodbury's Environmental Resources Specialist Kristin Seaman and other City staff with developing a tree canopy plan engagement process, and created an engagement toolkit that can be used by Woodbury and other communities. 

The project and outcomes were recently featured on the Metropolitan Council's PlanIt Podcast series: Episode 36: Enhancing Woodbury's Urban Tree Canopy.
