Tree Canopy

Why is Urban Tree Canopy Important?

  • Removal of pollutants from the air, soil and water
  • Release of water vapor into the atmosphere which cools the surrounding areas, mitigating the urban heat island effect
  • Interception of rainfall and reduction of storm water runoff (and thus, reducing the costs related to infrastructure required to manage it)
  • Energy savings and reduced greenhouse gas emissions due to shade provided
  • Carbon sequestration
  • Increased property values

Community Partners

The City of Sheridan's Tree Canopy initiative is in partnership with Groundwork Denver and Sheridan Inspire. For more information on outdoor activities for families and youth, please visit Sheridan Inspire's website here
