Tree Canopy

A 2007 analysis of landcover of the Lake Shore Campus showed that over 71% of the campus is impervious (either paving or buildings) with 15% in tree canopy and the other 14% in various vegetation (lawn, shrubs, gardens).  When you consider the area that has the potential to be planted (non-impervious), 53% is tree canopy.  This is similar to the Citywide tree canopy of 17.2%.
