Lexington's tree canopy

The tree canopy of Lexington has an immense impact on our environment, economy and society. With a leaf-on aerial view of Lexington, you can see our tree canopy, the coverage all the trees in Lexington have over the city.   

To get to know the wide variety of native tree species we have in Lexington, visit Go See Trees and take a tree tour.
