How will the City of Philadelphia determine where to plant 300,000 trees by 2015?
Sarah Low, Restoration Specialist, ENvironment, Stewardhip & Education Division, PPR, will explain how billions of laser points using LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) resulted in a 3-Dimensional image of the City. Ms. Low will address the tree canopy in East Falls and how homeowners can help Philadelphia, William Penn's "greene country towne," achieve its goal of a 30% canopy cover citywide.
