Tree Canopy Data for the Entire State of Pennsylvania

Jarlath O’Neil-Dunne at the University of Vermont just announced the release of a statewide, high-resolution tree canopy dataset for Pennsylvania.  The resolution of the data is 1 m which makes it 900 times more detailed than the National Land Cover Dataset; this is an amazing feat.

We previously worked with Jarlath to create tree canopy data for NYC and looked at the link between tree canopy coverage and asthma and allergic sensitization among children in NYC.
