Los Angeles Tree Canopy Map Viewer

The two map viewers shows the existing and possible tree canopy coverage at the parcel, block group, census tract, city, and council district level for the Los Angeles County. Tree canopy coverage data are derived from LiDAR images obtained covering the entire LA County from 2016-2017. Here are the difference between the Basic Viewer and the Advanced Viewer:

  • Basic Viewer: only shows existing and possible tree coverage; spatial unit will automatically change as users zoom in and out

  • Advanced viewer: shows other land cover types in addition to the tree canopy coverage; a relationship map showing a comparison of existing and possible area for tree canopy are also included
